Walking Shark

A bit lake for Shark Week, but that's what you get when you walk instead of swim, lil' sharky!

Meet Hemiscyllium halmahera, a new species of walking shark or bamboo shark found in the waters of eastern Indonesia. The shark has brown color with spots of dark polygons, and more notably, "walks" on the sea floor by using its pectoral and pelvic fins. Mark Erdmann of Weda Resort filmed the video clip above.
