  1. Extremely Rare Pocket Shark Found

    It fits in your pocket, but that’s not how it got the name. The 5.5-inch specimen, which was found in a freezer at the NOAA after being pulled from the ocean in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, has a distinctive pouch next to its pectoral fin. This is only the second pocket shark ever found — the other was discovered 36 years ago near Peru. Biologists will have to do more research to discover how the sharks can have such a large geographical range and remain so unknown to humans.
