Video reveals tiny steps of newborn ‘walking’ sharks

Some sharks can “walk,” and researchers recently discovered how one of these unusual shark species practices taking baby steps. They start when they are just hatched, and the way a hatchling walks is no different from that of older juveniles.

When the tide goes out near a coral reef, a small species of carpet shark it is often left behind. When you get stranded in shallow tide pools with declining and rising oxygen levels temperatures —or worse, stranded on hot slabs of exposed reef—most aquatic species wouldn’t stand a chance. But the epaulet shark (Hemiscyllium ocellatum) can hold its breath for hours and tolerate a range of temperatures. And in a pinch, you can walk.
