The great white shark--once considered a homebody--is proving a transoceanic traveler, according to results published in this week's issue of Science (p. 100). Another paper (p. 104) documents that a less fearsome cousin called the salmon shark has now shown up in Hawaii, far away from its supposed home in Alaska.
