The researchers gave a newly identified shark a systematic name of Etmoterus benchleyi,Â in loyalty to a creator of a film “Jaws,” Peter Benchley.Â
But VÃ¡squez wanted a common name to be additional special, so she enlisted for helpher younger cousins, who are between a ages of 8 and 14.
They went over a few names, including Left Shark Lanternshark and Super Ninja Shark, until finally settling on a name her colleagues would find some-more reasonable: Ninja Lanternshark.
“The common name we have suggested refers to a shark’s color, that is a uniform neat black as good as a fact that it has fewer photophores than other class of Lanternsharks,”Â VÃ¡squez told HuffPost.Â
“We felt those singular characteristics would make this class cat-like like a ninja.”
