Sharks Found in River Thames After 64 Years
Three shark breeds were discovered and prospering in the murky waters of the River Thames 64 years after it was declared ‘biologically dead’. The Zoological Society of London’s Alison Debney sees this as a positive step forward and a foundation on which to build in the future.
One of the sharks was the highly endangered tope shark. It can grow to 6ft long and is known for its powerful swimming and particularly hostile presence. The hound shark, which is between 37 to 220 centimeters in length, has also been spotted in the waters. Spurdog sharks are notorious for being very poisonous, and while their poison does not kill, it does cause severe discomfort and swelling.
