The University of Waikato will this weekend livestream the dissection of a shark!

It's a move to give the public an inside view, quite literally, of the shark and to dispell some myths around the notorious predator. The livestream can be found here at 2pm on Saturday, March 3.

The one holding the scalpel will be University of Waikato biology masters student, Melissa Kellett. She tells Jesse about the idea to livestream the biology lesson and what's special about the 2.54 metre long Bronze Whaler.
