I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase that “sharks are living dinosaurs.” And whether you agree with that or not, you gotta admit they have been around for a long time. All we mostly have to learn about ancient sharks are their teeth, if we’re lucky, since they are so good at fossilizing.
Introducing Hydrolagus alberti, also known as the Gulf chimaera today on The Fins United Initiative! Now as you can imagine, as a deepwater chimaera species, there is insufficient information about them. So don't expect us to know all about these animals just yet!
TFUI Founder Melissa C. Marquez is author of all animal bios and "Behind the Fins" segments.
