Who’s the daddy?


20 leopard sharks born in April at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, after their mother went through a 12-month pregnancy. But the question is – Who’s the Daddy?

PhD student Andy Nosal is doing a paternity test on the little sharks to work out how many males were involved in their conception (chances are, it’s more than one).

Right now the babies are about 8 inches long but will grow to be 6-foot adults (after they’ve been tested these bubs are headed back to the wild).
