Sharks possess social personalities a new study shows

Researchers from the Marine Biological Association and University of Exeter investigated the social interactions of captive juvenile small-spotted catsharks (Scyliorhinus canicula)

Researchers from the Marine Biological Association and University of Exeter investigated the social interactions of captive juvenile small-spotted catsharks (Scyliorhinus canicula), a shark species native in the northeast Atlantic and Mediterranean. They found consistent differences in the social behaviour of individual sharks indicating that they possess individual social personalities.
