Silky sharks got their name for their incredibly smooth skin, which makes it very hard for these scientists to get a hold on them to implant the chip, and any wrong move could spell disaster.
The only thing the scientists have going for them is the silky sharks lack of interaction with humans in the past, meaning they might not think of them as a threat. But with rows of sharp teeth just inches away, the pressure is on.
In Tiburones: Sharks of Cuba, scientists from the U.S. and Cuba teamed up to search for a population of great white sharks that may be inhabiting a virtually unexplored section of the sea off the coast of Havana. Their goal is also to confirm a 70-year-old legendary tale about a massive great white known as El Monstruo.
