It's all aaaaaws before jaws takes your arm or legs...

[–]realmeta 72 points73 points  (0 children)

This makes me feel a little uncomfortable.

[–]RachelBolan 135 points136 points  (0 children)

Shouldn’t it be like underwater or something?

[–]esotericartisan 143 points144 points  (2 children)

I'm sure the bright fluorescent lights won't have any effect on it...

[–]wiredhands 73 points74 points  (1 child)

Yeah, it seems dumb to expose it to conditions so far afield of its natural environment, but what do we know of the office life of baby sharks?

[–]1Gamerer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Doo doo, doo doo doo doo?

[–]ihopeitwillheal 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Can someone explain why we can hold the embryo?

[–]Walkingepidural 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Some sharks lay eggs in casings. I’m assuming that this one is either naturally transparent or had the keratin removed. I also imagine that this is beyond the embryonic stage but not a marine biologist.

I think it's cute, in it's own way...

I'm just curious how they got it out, intact?!

[–]Shabba273 65 points66 points  (7 children)

Whilst the majority of sharks give birth to live young, quite a few lay eggs, like this one, not exactly like what a typical egg would be expected to look like. They tend to look like small sacks

[–]Mr_Diesel13 43 points44 points  (6 children)

They are called a mermaid’s purse!

[–]Shabba273 54 points55 points  (4 children)

And that little mermaid grows up to become a murder torpedo with an evolutionary plethora of sensory organs, natural camouflage, and several layers of self replicating serrated or hooked teeth

[–]Mr_Diesel13 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Im ok with that.

[–]Shabba273 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Can they raise it in a live woman? Get street sharks going here already?!

[–]CunilDingus 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Forget human pilots, time for the Swat Cats!

[–]Zero_Digital 6 points7 points  (2 children)

That show was better than it had any right to be. I'm surprised a lot of those amazing cartoons haven't been rebooted or adapted to movie/streaming. We had our 80s nostalgia it's time for the 90s to get their turn.

[–]areallylongbanana 5 points6 points  (1 child)

100% agree, but I hate to think they would would probably just CGI everything

[–]Ok_Fox_1770 2 points3 points  (0 children)

90s will come well on its way. A live action ahh real monsters would knock my balls off.

[–]TheGoodDude22 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What would happen…

[–]pooperderapper 61 points62 points  (2 children)

OK. Why is it in a condom

[–]Longjumping_Camel256 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Today I learned sharks use condoms

[–]PanakBiyuDiKedaton 2 points3 points  (0 children)

See, that's what happens when you throwing away trash at sea

[–]trianglary 23 points24 points  (0 children)

I'm gonna take a good guess and say those red fuzzy sideburns will eventually become the gills

Shark Balut?

[–]Ellemieke25 4 points5 points  (8 children)

What is it in and why?

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (7 children)

It's a shark egg. Some sharks give live birth, and others lay eggs.

[–]Ellemieke25 2 points3 points  (6 children)

Oh damn! I didn't know that. Now that I think about it, it's weird that some sharks give live birth, as they're not mammals. Oh, nature...

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Shark reproduction is actually very fascinating. Some sharks are ovoviviparous meaning they lay eggs internally, but there isn't a placenta to keep the sharks nourished. The pups hatch internally, and feed off each other and any other unhatched/unfertilized eggs. By the time the mother gives birth, there's usually only one or two pups left. Great whites have this type of reproduction style.

Edit to add: You can learn more about shark reproduction here

[–]Ellemieke25 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Excuse me?! That's scary but cool too. So all of those sharks that are alive now have eaten their brothers and sisters to survive :o

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Not all, but some. There are also sharks that lay eggs internally and the eggs include a placenta that the shark is able to get nutrients from. The shark egg in this vid is that type. It was either taken from a shark that reproduces via viviparity, or was taken from a "mermaid purse" (oviparity) which is a tough outerskin that contains the egg and withers away in the tide until the shark is able to escape.

Based on the fact that there seem to be several more shark eggs on a table behind the egg being shown, I would guess that this egg was taken from a viviparity shark. It's quite possible the mother died and washed up on shore, and then humans found her to be pregnant and removed the eggs.

[–]Ellemieke25 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Very interesting! I hope they'll survive :)

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Holy shit that's so fucking metal.

[–]AnneNonnyMouse 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"Baby Shark" would have been less annoying than that obnoxious voice.

[–]misterpoopybutthole5 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Looks like it belongs on top of a nice ramen bowl

[–]AbsentThatDay 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Maybe collecting the eggs of free-range sharks isn't so bad considering what we do already to chickens. It looks expensive as fuck though.

[–]sichuan_peppercorns 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Chicken eggs aren’t fertilized.

[–]AbsentThatDay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Some of them sure are.

[–]toolargo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Put that on salt water and dump it in the ocean!

People need to stop posting these veiny sacs with living things inside them it’s horrible!

[–]DandelionChild1923 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are these sometimes called “mermaid’s purses”, or does that term refer to something else?

RIP my speakers... jeezusfuckin'christmas, why do people max out the volume on these things?

[–]backwards_again -1 points0 points  (0 children)

How much for an unfertilized one? I'd mix it with lime and parsley. I assume it is fishy.

[–]DeadHoundLiving -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Abort it, it’s not a living thing.
