Scientists have recorded seeing the endangered and rarely seen “Ninja Shark” off the coast of Malapascua Island in Cebu.
Rutgers University and the University of Chester have announced some rare sightings of the endangered fish, that are more commonly known as thresher sharks.
Thresher sharks are known to come near islands that have abundant reefs where parasites are cleaned from their bodies by tiny fish called wrasse.
According to researchers, the sharks prey on small fish like sardines and mackerels by whipping their tails at a speed of 50mph. They pose little threat to humans, unless you get in the way of their enormous tails.
