I Don't Need No Man/And I Don't Need No Lovin'

Female Sharks in Captivity Give Birth - sans Male Intervention.

A research team from Northern Ireland and the US at first thought she mated before capture, and then somehow stored the sperm for over three years before finally fertilising her eggs in the aquarium or that the shark had mated with a different species in the tank.

But tests confirmed
the newborn's DNA only matched up with the mother's - there was none of any male origin.

Excellent. Let's get some people on this right now.
