Baby Bull Huss born as annual shark event begins

After 9 months of waiting, two Bull Huss shark eggs hatched just ahead of Scarborough Sea Life Centre celebrating its annual Shark Week event.

Bull_HussAt just two weeks old and measuring approximately 10cm, the newest arrivals showcase an important breeding programme to help protect this vulnerable species.

“Their timing really couldn’t have been better” said Displays Curator, Lyndsey Crawford.

“During our annual Shark Week event, we want to show our guests that sharks are magnificent creatures and actually need protection.

In the eventuality that the population of Bull Huss in the wild drops to a critical level, the breeding programme we are part of will release sharks to help keep this species prominent in the waters” she continued.

Three more baby Bull Huss eggs are due to hatch imminently.

Bull Huss can be found in the North Sea and face threats from overfishing and pollution.

Shark Week will continue at Scarborough Sea Life Centre throughout the October half term holidays.
