Jesus, one of the many modern day superheroes
No one knew of this shark’s existence until 1976. They are rarely seen in shallow water. There have only been three known recordings and fifty-nine specimen sightings of this shark as of May, 2014.
That first gif blows my mind.

NEW DELHI, India — Madi is a bully. He has three-inch canines that glisten when he snarls.
And that’s a good thing, says his owner, Niraj.
Madi is a langur — a large, grey monkey with a black face and ears, endemic to South Asia.
Big and menacing, he’s able to scare off this city’s 30,000 smaller, red-faced rhesus monkeys, to protect the local human population from their naughty and dangerous antics.
Niraj earns his living hauling Madi around India’s capital on his bicycle to scare away monkeys that hang around parks, rob offices (really) and terrorize people.
It’s hard to over-emphasize this point: India’s rhesus monkeys are derelicts. They regularly steal food, alcohol, glasses, medical equipment, and clothes. They even break into cars.

Being a “product of their times” is no excuse. Never let someone off the hook for bigotry.
