Cuddle That Shark

A co-worker sent me this story about celebrity sharks that have their own twitter accounts. In an attempt to educate the public about the lives of sharks and their benefits to the ecosystem as well as lessen their stigma, researchers gave the sharks warm-fuzzy names (Mary Lee and Lydia). The animals also have social media presences, tossing off jokes and posting their pings as they travel. I’m sure there’s a kid’s book in this story and maybe even a fantasy novel too. Most of all, I smell a reality show (ew).
