It would be more impressive if they were doing this with great whites or other shark species known to attack human. Leopard sharks are harmless.

Glad to see that it is illegal to catch or kill Great Whites off the California coast. Because ecology.

We should throw a celebratory ocean swim party for all of the legislators who voted for that law. And invite some Great White sharks as surprise "speakers."

This....is not why research occurs or is impressive. And the danger of Great Whites is on par with the danger of being struck by lightning several times in quick succession.

Of course, lightning can strike almost anywhere, whereas sharks a generally relegated to the farkING ocean.

Last I checked, Humans built boats so they wouldn't have to worry about sharks. That's our adaptation. Not "murdering them."

They'd be more likely to get hurt driving to the beach than swimming with the sharks.

I'm glad that subby put in "one of" in front of "nature's most perfect killing machine" because sharks are no better than 3rd behind humans and domestic house cats.

This seems surprisingly low, considering bee allergies & anaphylaxis.

Dude, you know where they are. Wake me up when sharks start roaming our neighborhoods without some gay-ass musical dance number. When you swim in the ocean you're a hundred times more likely to drown anyway.

This reminded me of something from the Rifts RPG. It was a cyborg shark on robotic spider legs. If that isn't bad enough, it has a pair of arms and a rifle. Pure nightmare fuel!

Which is why I support Dr. Mobious and his Robo-Scorpion project, much more deadly then Dr. Klien and his Mug killing robot.
