SCIENCE!!! Comics - Episode 6: When is a scalloped hammerhead not a scalloped hammerhead?




This week! When is a scalloped hammerhead not a scalloped hammerhead? (or: A tail of two sharks)

This week's comic is based on a press release from Nova Southeastern University. Several news sites have covered this story, including Discovery News and Live Science.

Learn what makes one species different from another from UC Berkeley - it's a harder and more interesting question than you might think!

You can find out more about shark finning, and find out how shark fin soup alters the ecosystem. Shark finning is now banned in the US, but shark products that result from shark fishing can still be bought here.
