Discussion on Lake Titicaca

jimboguy :

Looking for sound evidence specifically on sharks (not rays). Also, am somewhat familiar with the abilities of sharks to, from time to time, swim in freshwater streams but am really looking for evidence of lakes, specifically Lake Titicaca or evidence that would rule out the possibility whatsoever.

a kinder, gentler me :
"Titicaca!!!!!!!!!! I would say no."
Professor Beatz :
"Titicaca is an abnormal lake to begin with. It shows the presence of oceanic species like sea horses, and is thought to have been formerly a part of the sea which became isolated and elevated."
lyaser44 :
"It is po0ssible for them to survive for a very short time but they would be headed for salt water as quickly as possible."
prime078 :
"The only shark that can survive in fresh water for prolonged periods without going crazy is the bull shark. There are some lakes in Africa that have indigenous shark populations left over from eras when rivers connected the lakes to oceans. A bull shark could probably survive in Titicaca, if you could get it up there without killing it, which would be difficult. The altitude might give it some trouble though; not sure about that."
Desert Rat :
"I belive bull sharks have been shown to complete their life cycle in fresh water in Lake Nicaragua, but they are a tropical/subtropical species that would not be able to survive in waters of Titicaca because of the elevation and temperature of the water."
tongsoy :
"they can live if they are fresh water sharks. besides, Lake Titicaca is a "lake at the top of the world". no shark can travel there."
cascadecoins :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Titicaca, yes its a real place

conan :
"he said..What did the moron say when he fell in lake Titicaca"
an_articulate_soul :
""help me, i'm drowning and i can't swim""
FredHH :
"Glug glug Glug (as he sinks out of sight.)"
Mike D :
"He said well at least i can get some before i drown in crap"
Blackheart :
"Titi! Caca is coming now! Caca is the moron himself. Titi is his lover!"
tess :
"he can't say anything, he's drowned :)"
mohannaduos :
"He said: 'Moron is drawing any help??'"
PaulyDragon :

You can bring anyone you want along with you. Remember that The Great Cornholio ranted about Lake Titicaca, but as far as I know he never actually visited Lake Titicaca. Anything you'd like to happen can happen, of course . . . >

Cutemum :
"hehehe!!!! TITI !!!!"
♥ Fran ♥ :
"lol...no...I can' t afford to go that far away...lol love the name..."
Baboushka :
"I wish i could go! Maybe one day!!!"

喀喀湖(Lake Titicaca)和我预期的情况完全不同,我原先以为它一定被群山环绕。但是事实上,它是一个被沙土、光秃秃的山包和简单的山村所包围着的巨大的湖泊。我们居住的小镇名字叫Puno...

The Aymara people, who for centuries have lived around Lake Titicaca in the Andes, defend the principle of 7 different types of peace. The first is inner peace. Peace with yourself through the health of your body, the clarity of your mind, the pleasure of your work, the reciprocity of your loves. Without peace with yourself, you are not at peace.

From Dick Butkus to Hootie and the Blowfish to Lake Titicaca, bad names have been with us forever. But thanks to the inevitable collision of reclusive nerds, bizarre artists and painfully unhip marketing execs, the video game industry enjoys some of the worst names of all.

Nestled high in the Bolivian Andes, the famed Lake Titicaca is being strangled by city-fed pollution that is driving away local people who draw sustenance from its mythical waters.
