Curious 'Cat - image

Celebrating Shark Week, the Curious ‘Cat asked Falvey Library staff,

“If you could be any species of shark, what would you be?”

1Mike Sgier, Access and Collections Coordinator: “Jaguar shark” [The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.]

3Chris Hallberg, Library Technology Developer: “The Greenland shark because they are the longest living vertebrate on the planet.”

4Sarah Wingo, Librarian for English Literature, Theatre, and Romance Languages and Literature: “I don’t know why, but the hammerhead shark is my favorite; they just look so cool.”

Darren Poley, Theology, Classics, and Humanities Librarian: “I would be a friendly brownbanded bamboo shark.”

Geoffrey Scholl, Library Technology Developer; Dave Uspal, Library Technology Developer: “A whale shark because they look more dangerous than they really are. They’re actually super chill.”
