Scientists Catch Pregnant Shark, Give It A Sonogram

June 30, 2016


This is a video from the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science and The University Of New England of researchers capturing a 12.5-foot tiger shark and giving it a sonogram. The sonogram reveals that the mother-to-be has almost 20 baby sharks inside, already toothy and ready to start devastating local fish families. 'They ate my parents! Maybe. I can't remember.' -- Dory. The screenshot above shows the sonogram with outlines and color added to make the sharks easier to see, that's not what the sonogram actually looks like. Disappointing, I know, but that's life -- disappointment is all around. You think somebody is cool and then you see them only leave a $4 tip on a $76 bar tab. How could you, Brian? I guess I thought we were more similar than we are.

Keep going for the video while I delete some numbers out of my phone.

Thanks to ST, who isn't giving a pregnant shark anything but a handful of pink and blue bubblegum cigars to pass out to friends and family after the babies arrive. That's nice of you.
