What Sucks…Shark Virgin Births!
More news from the world of sharks, and as usual, it ain’t good.
As reported here once already, scientists have now confirmed a 2nd instance of sharks giving birth asexually. What does that mean? Sharks can have babies without having sex, you know, like the British. Why would sharks be interested in doing that? Well the only reason I can come up with is I guess it gives them more time to try and kill us.
Officially, scientists have determined that a female blacktip shark, which had recently died, was carrying a pup fetus. They can say for sure this shark was never in contact with a male blacktip shark in the 8 years it was in their tank- nor is it possible that the shark was impregnated before it entered the tank (8 years ago). So, either sharks can spontaneously produce off-spring, or some male blacktip shark has been sneaking into the tank at night, and doing the nasty with the female shark.
Either case shows a strong evolution in sharks that do not bode well for humans.
I guess its only a matter of time before sharks develop wings, learn to fly and become unstoppable forces- get used to stories like this on your local news…
“…A woman who was jogging today was killed when a Great White Shark swooped down from the sky and ate her. Witnesses say the shark was doing a sudoku puzzle at the time of the attack."
