The National Geographic Society/Waitt Grants Program's Brennan Phillips and his expedition team captured film from inside Kavachi, an active volcano off the coast of New Guinea. They did not expect to find oceanic life in the warmer acidic water of this volcano, but apparently nature found a way for some sharks and other sea creatures to adapt.

It is known that much of the ocean and its species have yet to be explored, and bizarre finds like this are proof. "Mutant volcano sharks" sounds more like the title of a SyFy TV movie starring Tara Reid and Ian Ziering. One that we'd all gladly watch. Until then, let's hope we can study these new mutant predators at a safe distance before they become smarter.
