Things We Saw Today: A Very Rare Photo Of An Oceanic Shark Giving Birth


Dr. Simon Oliver and A. E. Bicskos Kaszo captured what’s thought to be the first or one of the first photos of an oceanic shark giving birth. The image has been published in the journal Coral Reefs. As Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute senior scientist Dr. Simon Therrold told BBC:

I understand the deterrents — potential jail time, the humiliation of community service, destruction of property (or beautification, depending on your view), late nights, dark places, high climbs. All of this reminds me of that Always commercial, Like a Girl, where all of the girls and boys run exactly the same until about age 12, then take the meaning of running ‘like a girl’ to mean flailing hands and legs and skipping and not sincerely running hard and kicking ass.
