The Tennessee Aquarium has three new baby epaulette, Hemiscyllium ocellatum, sharks. These new additions are the result of eggs laid on exhibit. One pair of adult epaulette sharks live in the Stingray Bay touchtank. These noctural fish usually only lay two eggs at a time. But three eggs were discovered by aquarists several months ago and all three were fertile, yielding the very first baby sharks of this species at the Aquarium.
Researchers are studying this particular species of shark seeking medical advances that may help stroke and brain injury victims.Epaulette sharks have the ability to survive for lengthy periods of time in water with low oxygen levels. And they are able to do so without suffering any brain or neurological side effects.
