How many babies can a great white shark have?

Some sharks lay eggs, while others give live birth. Great white sharks gestate their pups for a year before giving birth – that's longer than humans. Between 2 to 12 babies are born at a time. Great whites can live up to 60 years, maybe more.

How long is a shark pregnant for?

Pregnancy lasts years for some species. Some scientists estimate that basking shark gestation lasts up to 3.5 years. Frilled sharks may also carry their pups for more than three years. Some smaller species are at the other end of the spectrum. Bonnethead sharks, for example, give birth after around five months.

Females give birth to a litter of between one and 13 live young after a 10 to 11-month gestation period. Bull sharks can live to be at least 14 years old.

How many eggs do sharks lay?

Shark eggs are encased within a tough, leathery pouch known as an egg-case, egg-capsule, or “mermaid's purse”. Each shark egg-case holds one embryo (the egg-cases of some skates hold multiple embryos). Sharks such as the lesser spotted dogfish (also known as the small spotted catshark) lay around 20 eggs each year.

Do shark babies eat each other?

Some species practice intrauterine cannibalism, or eating the other fertilized or unfertilized eggs in the womb. That's because as the sharks develop their embryonic teeth, they start to eat the other embryos, killing their unborn brothers and sisters, as well as the unfertilized eggs.

How do shark give birth?

Ovoviviparity: Most sharks are ovoviviparous, they combine the first two methods.

When the egg hatches, the shark pup continues developing inside the female until it's born.
