A shark midwife

This is almost too bizarre to be true:

Visitors to Kelly Tarlton’s Underwater World were stunned to see one shark give another shark an impromptu caesarean section.

Staff were initially dubious when visitors came running to tell them there were baby sharks spilling from a wound in a female school shark’s stomach – courtesy of a large bite by another shark.

But they found a female with a large gaping stomach wound and four babies swimming in the tank.

A shark as a surgeon – no need for all those years at medical school.
