Head researchers, Jess Morgan, said the shark hybrid resulting from a mating between a black nose shark Australia common black nose with sharks at the same time is a surprising discovery in science.


"It was shocking because no one has ever seen a hybrid shark before, This is evidence of an evolutionary process," said Morgan.

He said the discovery was made during the shark hybrid species of sharks recorded work in Australia's east coast recently.
