Scientists seek to save baby-eating sharks from themselves
Sharks whose babies eat each other in the womb may not be everybody's idea of a species worth worrying about, but Australian scientists are desperately trying to save them from themselves.

That's about the silliest thing I've ever heard. Isn't there a reason for everything? I'm sure the baby sharks have a darn good reason for wiping out their "siblings". Like maybe mama shark can't afford to support the other 39? :) Don't these scientists have something better to do with their time than artificially "save" baby sharks? H/T: Shining City Atop a Hill
