Sharks can have their own personalities—that is according to a new study. The Study published in the journal Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology, is the first study to show that the water borne predators have their own personality. David Jacoby, a behavioral ecologist now at the Institute of Zoology, and his colleagues conducted the research.
The shark’s posses social personalities including being social or shy. While anti social humans might be called “wall flowers” when they stand alone next to a wall the sharks do something similar except on the sea floor. The more social sharks have groups of other sharks and are generally more well-connected with others. Although more research will have to be done on the matter to learn more about how sharks socialize with others in the ocean. The new research is very interesting if you keep sharks professionally.
