Sharks Like Hot Tubs?

According to recent research from the University of Washington, it looks like Great White Sharks are partial to hot tubs too.

Two female great white sharks were tagged with Wildlife Computers SPOT tags that measured the location and one that recorded depth and temperature.

After capturing data, scientists found that the two sharks spent a significant amount of time in the warm whirlpool eddies. Because sharks are warm-blooded, the eddies might allow sharks to forage longer in deeper water where there is likely to be more food. If I were a shark, I would definitely want to be warm and hang out where the food is.
