ISLA CERRALVO (MEXICO)- The one-eyed mutant albino ‘cyclops’ shark that was found last week at the Mexican isle of Cerralvo has created a lot of buzz on the internet. Scientists have x-rayed the misformed embryo shark and confirmed it real.
Just as in 2006 when a kitten was born with one eye and no nose (a rare condition called holoprosencephaly), an online buzz created when media and scientists tried to determine if the photos of the animal were real. The little cat lived one day.
According to Seth Romans, a spokesman for Pisces Fleet, Galvan Magana and his colleagues will publish a scientific paper about the shark within the next several weeks, Fox News reports.
