My friend John Hartwell alerted me to a fascinating discovery in Japan of a prehistoric shark being found alive. The individual shark wasn't from prehistoric times, mind you, just the species -- sharks live a long time, but hundreds of millions of years is a bit of a stretch even for them. Here's the photo:
And what follows is our e-mail exchange about the article:
Me: Wow, that's really cool! Thanks for sending it along. Of course, being Japanese they immediately cut it up and made sushi out of it, which is really too bad ...
John: yeah, but it was prehistoric sushi. so it was like they were ingesting the power of Godzilla!
Gojira! Gojira! More wasabe for Gojira!
