A Man Delivers Shark Pups In South African Beach, a video has been released that shows the incredible moment a man in South Africa pulled three live baby shark pups from their dead mother.
The footage was uploaded to Live Leak, with the caption: “A family beach day for the photographer of this amazing footage turned into one of the most memorable events ever when they came across a dead pregnant shark and helped three young pups take their first swim.
“The lady filming the episode is said to have noticed movement in the dead shark that lay ashore. Once they established that the shark was in fact pregnant, the man in the footage start cutting open the dead shark to release not one, but three live sharks from her belly.
“Baby sharks, called shark pups, are born with a full set of teeth, which might explain the shark rescuer’s hesitation to handle them.
“Although ‘hatching’ within their mother and staying inside them for up to two years, sharks pups quickly swim away after being born to prevent being eaten by their mothers.
“Hence, it’s safe to say the sharks have no disadvantage because of their beach birth as they are fully independent once born.”
Other beachgoers can be heard cheering with delight as the babies are released back into the sea.
