Cannibalism in the Tiger Shark Embryo

Collection 018011: Animated Model of the young Tiger Shark. The young shark will start to hunt down and eat any eggs or younger embryos that it finds. This ensures that it has no competition until it is born at which time another embryo will be able to survive and eat its siblings.  A continuous supply of nutrient rich eggs from the mother will feed the young shark from now on.
