Tawny Nurse Shark

Guardian Mathias Stocker
Nebrius ferrugineus

You know the scene where the little boy is crying and telling his mum that his big brother won’t share. There are no little brothers for this shark, the big brother eats them, brothers, sisters all of them! These sharks retain their eggs inside of themselves and the first egg to hatch will eat all the other eggs in the uterus (even if they have hatched). When they enter the ocean then, they are well developed, have experience eating things and have escaped the torment of annoying little siblings.
