  • Good news from the Oklahoma Aquarium

    I just got this in the email.... I thought I'd post it here.
    Good morning, well, it has been an exciting week at the Aquarium! If you
    have not heard we had a "best" bad day here on Monday. Female bullshark #2
    was invoved in a freak incident. It has been determined that the male
    became very aggressive and in an attempt to avoid his attentions she
    propelled herself into a surface skimmer attatched to her tank. Biology
    staff did all they could to revive her; unfortunately that was not
    possible. Now for the BEST, she was pregnant! This is the first documented
    pregnancy for bullsharks in captivity. During the necropsy 3 embryos were
    discovered. The Oklahoma Aquarium is saddened by the loss and at the same
    time thrilled that we have accomplished something believed impossible
    until now. Biology and LSS staff stayed the whole evening to adapt the
    tank so this type of incident can not happen again.

    There is the possibility that another pregnancy has occured. Keep your
    fingers crossed!!!! Romance is in the water at the Oklahoma Aquarium.
