And Another Quick Post

Exhausted and lazy today, so just another weird fact.   
 
The embryos of sand tiger sharks are cannibalistic. They fight and eat their siblings while in the mother's womb. Only the strongest is born.

Like Highlander. But with sharks.

Devon Davidson said...

I've heard about this before. Not sure if this happens with other sharks though.

Marian said...

that's really good from an evolutionary point of view. what's the point of giving birth to weak babies? natural selection at it's best.

Probably born with an attitude too. I hope they get spanked, having a kid that thinks he's tough shit cause he killed his brothers and sisters would be a pain.
