Any Undiscovered Shark Species?

17 posts in this topic

How likely is it that there could still be some undiscovered species of shark?

I'm not talking about Megalodon or some other long extinct species, but a viable species that could perhaps live at extreme depths or climate.

Can't see why not.

We're discovering new species all the time.

It would be fairly astounding (and rather worrisome) if we didn't.

I am sure there are some evolving in those waters, what with the pollution being dumped, let alone the radiation the Japanese have contributed, if the sharks and other fish do not die out, they will evolve into.....something far more resilient.

Will not stop people trying to swim with them.

There's so much undiscovered stuff still in the ocean, so likely, yes.

We know more about our galaxy than we do about our oceans!

They will evolve into Street Sharks!

Don't tell the Japanese, or the Chinese if one is found.

It's a big ocean, with lots of habitats. It wan't too long ago when they discovered the Megamouth Shark, a very large deep sea plankton feeder, so anything is possible.

I doubt that :) to me that's like the 10 percent brain myth.

I think there could be many undiscovered species of shark out there, just not the kind popular on cryptozoology sites.

The chances of new species of shark being discovered in the future is near 100%

But probably not Megalodon.. :w00t:

The chances of megalodon specifically being 'discovered' alive is near 0%, Although perhaps somewhat higher if one is using the name more generically and will settle for any huge predatory shark of the same general size (but perhaps adapted to deeper water enviornments than megalodon was).

Definitely, I think. The ocean is such a vast place that hides so many things. We're always finding all sorts of different creatures in the depths. I'm sure there's some kind of deep-dwelling shark that lives near the bottom of the ocean or something like that. :) A mega-shark though? Unfortunately, I don't think that's too likely.

They will evolve into Street Sharks!

Heheh, a couple of friends and I had a bad cartoon marathon and that was one of the shows we watched. I secretly want a CGI-live action movie, like the new TMNT movie. :P
