It's a Shark!!!

June 29, 2007

Albany - Have you ever seen a shark egg? Now's your chance. Right now you can see the eggs of white spotted bamboo sharks at the Flint Riverquarium.

The Flint Riverquarium received them from SeaWorld Orlando. Take a close look and you can actually see the shark embryos move inside the eggs. "These small mythic sharks lay eggs on corral heads and rocks and things like that, then they develop and hatch and just swim away when they're ready," said General Curator Richard Brown.

Most of these eggs will hatch within about six moths. White spotted bamboo sharks grow to be about three to four feet. For a closer look at the eggs, just visit the Flint Riverquarium.
