Almost a dozen baby catsharks born in Newquay aquarium

Those staying in luxury accommodation in Cornwall who visit Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium soon can see almost a dozen little bundles of joy after an unexpected baby boom. Six catsharks have been born so far and there will be a few more on the way.

The baby catsharks were born within a few weeks of each other, surprising staff at the aquarium who have said that it is rare for that many egg-cases to have hatched in such a short space of time. As well as the six newborns, a number of other egg-casings are very close to hatching and a few more babies can be expected.

Visitors looking for a great day out can see these little sharks for themselves, which are just 10cm long when they are born. Eventually, they could reach up to 1m in length, and visitors will surely want to visit the attraction soon to see the sharks before they grow up and are transferred to sister aquariums.
