Shark Reproduction


There are three ways in which shark pups are born:

- oviparity: eggs incubation takes from 6 to 15 months depending on the species (horn shark, cat shark)

- viviparity: young sharks are born alive (hammerhead shark, bull shark)

- ovoviviparity: embryo develops in egg within the female's body (great white shark)

Sharks do not care for their babies after they are born.
