How Do Sharks Reproduce?


There are three different ways in which every shark species reproduce.

While mating in sharks has been rarely observed, most species do it while they swim parallel to each other and the male inserts a clasper into female’s oviduct.

Sharks lay eggs in the ocean.

Very much like mammals, sharks have placental links with developing pups, nourish them and keep them until pups born fully functional.

This is the most common reproduction method among sharks.

Eggs develop inside the oviduct of the mother and then hatch inside the oviduct where they finish their development using the remaining egg content to make pups born fully functional.
