You know how people do that weird thing when a cute baby’s nearby, where they tickle the baby and say things like, “Ooh, who’s a cute baby? Who’s so cute? Who’s so cute I could just eat him up?” According to a new study, an ancient precursor to modern sharks had the cutest babies around. OK, that’s a bit of an extrapolation and probably not an accurate one at that.
