Animal magnetism

I really liked this article in Physics Today about how animals sense magnetic fields. I had no idea that (a) so many different kinds of animals can do it, or (b) so little is known about how they do it.

    Although not overly familiar with the subject, im pretty confident that research has proven that Sharks are profficient at using magnetic fields when sourcing prey.

    I do believe that they find magnetic fields unpleasant and that significant stidues were made using this theory for shark repulsion methods.
