Sharkblog: Mummy Sharks!

Firstly, take note: National Geographic has TONS of videos available, including their films on sharks and shark attacks.

“…They are designed to attack large prey items at the surface.”

Icthyologist John McCosker is my favorite icthyologist ever. He keeps pickled shark specimens in a big box called the “Sharkophagus.” I think we all know where this one is going. Sharks + brine = mummy sharks.

We’re looking at supreme danger here.

There are varying theories on how to fight a mummy – the most commonly accepted theory is that the use of the Book of Amun-Ra is required. However, this is mainly based on the assumption that the Book of the Dead was used to resurrect the mummy from the dead to begin with. A shark mummy may or may not present a different sort of danger. The first step in fighting a shark mummy should be to determine what exactly brought the shark mummy back from the dead. It may be the everyday Book of the Dead, or it may have something to do with the slightly-less-popular Book of Neptune. It may not even have anything to do with the supernatural at all…but, let’s face – it probably would.

I’m not going to lie, it’s a little disappointing that National Geographic has no videos on their research in this field. (They really don’t. I looked.) Perhaps this is next for John McCosker. Then again, we are dealing with supernatural spells and ancient books of powers. Sometimes the search for the cure leads to the disease. This may be a danger best left ignored.
