Blacktip Shark Hybrid
Oh, what? Is the name not creative enough for you? Don't blame the messenger for the lack of inspiration when naming this water beast, but the moniker is as accurate as one can get. The cross-breeding of the Australian blacktip shark and the more common blacktip has lead to the very first hybridization of sharks, discovered in 2012, and though their physical appearance is unremarkable, their appearance in nature is an incredible leap in the evolution of the species. Initially, news outlets claimed that the hybridization was in response to climate change, though scientists are more inclined to believe that, while it's unlikely climate change triggered the cross-breeding, it may prove beneficial for the species in the future.
