Sea Life- part 2
here a short addition to my last entry of SEA LIFE -
they have sharks there in a big basin & a lot of different rays in a very shallow basin & this 2 kind of very related fish (family: Knorpelfisch - what's that in english?) sometimes copulate (that in fishy terms in most cases the female fish release their eggs & the male one spreads his semen over the eggs - but I don't no how sharks do it) & later they leave their eggs in the basin's which of course would soon be eaten by other inhabitants of the in relation to the wide sea, totally overcrowded basins.
So they snatch them from the basins & put them in little hatch basins to breed them - & these eggs look so funny, more like a strange fruit of a tree than an fish egg - look here:
from the outside it looks like some dead plant material, totally uninteresting for any egg robbers..
& here's another shark egg - semi-transparent & you see inside the silhoutte of a tiny baby shark, swimming inside the hatching chamber of that egg, like human babies swim inside a woman's womb
but while on research I found another shark babe's picture with a short text to it - it was:
"This Shortfin Mako Shark Isurus oxyrinchus embryo is approximately 50cm in length. It has a distended stomach, which is full of egg yolk from eggs it has been eating inside the body of the female shark. Photo by T. Carter.."
Really sharky, isn't it?
So we have proof that certain kinds of sharks really copulate & release their eggs inside their wombs..
