You have heard of Sharknado, how about Sharkano! Check out this footage of sharks swimming in a volcano, yes sharks swimming in an active underwater volcano. National Geographic recently released this pretty killer. Scientists were able to drop an underwater camera inside of live submarine volcano, Kavachi, just off the coast of the Solomon Islands. This video raises so many questions for scientists to consider. On one hand, the the animals safety remaining in the active volcano is of concern. One has to wonder will the animals get a warning before the volcano blows? On the other hand, one certainly can’t ignore the ability of animals to adapt to unbelievable environments.  I will look forward to more studies to come about this awesome phenomenon.  MORE
