Life Finds A Way

Female hammerhead sharks can reproduce without having sex, scientists confirm.

The birth of the hammerhead (of the bonnethead species, Sphyrna tiburo) at Henry Doorly was as tragic as it was puzzling.

The new pup was soon killed by a stingray before keepers could remove it from its tank.

Those stingrays can be real bitches, can't they? Crocodile Hunter, Jesus fish... is no one safe?

Don't say Croc Hunter. :( I'm sad now. Thanks!
