Fins up if you love sharks! There’s still a lot to learn about these fascinating, misunderstood creatures, but one thing we do know is that there’s a huge diversity of spectacular shark species gliding through our ocean.
Scientists studying tiger sharks
accidentally found a pregnant mother,
performed the first ever sonogram of
the species, and got an inside view of
20 well-developed pups. Until recently,
most scientists who wanted to study a
pregnant shark had to cut the
mother open. SourceSource 2

OH NOES look how evil and violent man-eating tiger sharks are! AAHHH!
