Tiny shark doo doo doo... 🦈🎵 A small shark found in the Gulf of Mexico nearly 10 years ago has turned out to be a new species.

The American pocket shark is named after the pouches it has near its front fins and not for its diminutive size.

The five-and-a-half inch shark’s mysterious pouches squirt little glowing clouds into the ocean, according to scientists studying the creature.

Mark Grace of the NMFS Mississippi Laboratories said; “I’ve been in science 40 years and I can usually make a good guess about a marine animal’s identity. I couldn’t with this one.”
