1935 and Sharks - We have come a long way

Digging up rare clips like these really reminds you how far we have come in terms of the understanding of sharks.

This is one of those videos you just shake your head at, but in its day this was all that was known of Tigers in the Gulf of Mexico.

White Sharks and Snickers - Good Combo

From time to time commercial interests enlist sharks to sell their products. This week Snickers launched it's new brand using the white shark.

Great stuff, very funny, and terrific graphic rendering of a white shark, with details on individual animals right down to scar and spot patterns. This is not your average Nicorette commercial.

Did we see the spot patterns of Isla Guadalupe's Bruce on the first shark?
