So, it was a Caesarean bite given to save the babies? According to news reports, the four babies are now safe and soon will be released into the wild.

Female Shark

Staff at Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World, in Auckland were not aware that one of the female school sharks in the aquarium was pregnant. It is only when some visitors came running to tell that baby fish were spilling from a wound of shark, the aquarium stuff came to know about pregnancy. But it was already late and they found the female with a large gaping stomach wound and four babies swimming in the tank. Another shark already did the job of a surgeon by biting the female school shark's stomach.

In wild, sharks do bite each other, but till now it was not known that they do use the biting method to give birth. According to experts, the shark that helped had to bite a certain part of the stomach to release the babies without killing them or the mother. On the other hand, if the female shark had given birth naturally, most likely at night, the babies would have been eaten by adult sharks and stingrays before they could be rescued. So, it was really an incredible act. What you say?
