    And to think the hammerhead shark or the goblin shark was weird-looking; the stethacanthus is weirder-looking if you ask me.

    note to Melvin Roberts: don’t brag about it in rural Andean countries. it’s a sign of a gods disfavor (Apu) and the locals will whack you to please them.

    Wonder if they based that sketch of stethacanthus on one skeleton. Could have been a birth defect.

    There’s a woman who survived two lightning strikes and has a special room built in her home to protect her during lightning storms.

    @Kali39

    You’re right. He’s the Guiness Book of world Records Holder for surviving the most Lightning strikes. He died in 1983, at the age of 71 from self-inflicted gunshot wound.

    So let’s see, at one time there was an Anvil-Finned shark? Any relation to the
    Hammerhead? ;)

    The only way to get hit by lightning that many times is by trying.

    Evolution is the result of birth defects. If they are positive and helpful, they get passed on. If not the defect usually kills the defective.

    Interesting how sharks have slimmed down in the hundreds of millions of years. For most of them they are stripped down to their most slick, essential optimum shape.

    Some people are born with extra fingers or bi-colored eyes. A few are living lightning rods.

    Not birth defects. YOu see Evolution tends to continually creating variations. Even when some become optimum for survival outlier traits still show up because Evolution is about being flexible for a changing environment. Traits that help you survive for 100 million years become fatal if you can’t adapt to a new ecology where your traits have become detrimental.
