During the last 14 day, the Kavachi, an underwater volcano in the Solomon Islands, has erupted again. However, the most surprising thing is that scientists have observed the presence of certain the Sharks around the volcano. According to information from “The Guardians”, National Geographic discovered, in 2015, two species of sharks and other marine life inhabiting the active crater.

The two species that inhabit the crater of the volcano are: hammerhead sharks (Sphyrna spp) and silky sharks (Carcharhinus falciformis). Because of this, Kavachi became known as “Sharkcano”, a mix of shark and volcano.

In an interview with the New York Post, researcher Kadie Bennis said this was not surprising, given that humans also live around volcanoes. “So it’s completely normal for sharks and other marine life to be around underwater volcanoes, because that also helps the ecosystem.”sharp.

Also according to “The Guardian”, scientists believe that these two species were able to adapt and, according to many years of evolution, were able to inhabit the volcano. It is not yet known how the sharks save themselves when the volcano erupts, but this answer could be obtained with a specific study.
