Want To See What A Shark Sees? This Camera Can Show You

Scientists are trying to look through the eyes of a shark so they can understand why some can glow.
There are two species of catsharks that use biofluorescence — the chain catshark and the swell shark. But no one can say for certain why these sharks sometimes give off a green light.
So researchers with the American Museum of Natural History developed a camera that essentially mimics the way a shark eye sees.
