The Best Show Ever?

2pm - 6pm

GANSBAAI, SOUTH AFRICA - OCTOBER 19: A Great White Shark is attracted by a lure on the 'Shark Lady Adventure Tour' on October 19, 2009 in Gansbaai, South Africa. The lure, usually a tuna head, is attached to a buoy and thrown into the water in front of the cage with the divers. The waters off Gansbaai are the best place in the world to see Great White Sharks, due to the abundance of prey such as seals and penguins which live and breed on Dyer Island, which lies 8km from the mainland.

British Woman Runs Marathons for 106 Straight Days

Woman Receives 87 Houses for the Price of One

What is the best deal you ever got? I am sure many of us take advantage when we see a two-for-one deal at the local store. But those types of deals usually don’t get seen in the housing market. But one woman got the deal of the century when she got 87 homes, despite paying for just one. How did she get such a great deal? Apparently, all it took was a copy and paste mistake, putting the deeds of 86 other posts and homes under her name. To correct the mistake, the woman will have to transfer all deeds back. But for now, she has the deed to a lot more properties than she intended.

The Oldest Shark in the World

Researchers tagging Tiger Sharks off the coast of Belize found a very different type of shark. They pulled in a Greenland Shark, which can be one of the longest-living shark species. What made it so rare, is that they are usually only found in the Arctics, and even then usually deep below sea level. This fella was found in the Caribbean and is believed to be the first Greenland Shark ever found there. Here is what Devanshi Kasana, a Ph.D. candidate at the Florida International University Predator Ecology and Conservation lab, said about the discovery.

“It was just very surprising and confusing. As soon as it entered our field of vision, we saw a black figure that was getting bigger and bigger. When it came to the surface, none of the crew with all of their combined fishing experience had seen anything like that.”- Devanshi Kasana

Greenland Sharks can live to be over 500 years old. Making it likely the longest-living shark species in the world.
