Mutants In The News — \m/ METAL!!! \m/ Edition

According to Australian Geographic, great white sharks know how to rawk.

"Matt's research was inspired by dive operators on Guadalupe Island, who discovered playing music underwater for clients also caused changes in shark behaviour...when the great whites heard the AC/DC songs, they swam up and rubbed their faces against the source of the music."

I wonder what they think of John Williams' scores?

Small swarms of amphibious Recon And Naval Assault robots were used by The Ancients to infiltrate and attack enemy warships and submerged installations.  They stand 2' tall, and can leap considerable distances.   RANAbots possess full arrays of visual and recording sensors, and their small frames each house one collapsible, pop-up weapon.
