What happens in a tiger shark's uterus stays in a tiger shark's uterus

Rob posted a link to a Discovery News story yesterday about shark embryos eating one another in the womb. Today, I read a second piece on this research that I have to share with you, for no other reason than this fantastic/horrific quote (and all the implications contained therein): "It’s so voracious that at least one scientist has been bitten by a sand tiger pup while unwisely sticking a finger in a pregnant female’s uterus." Yes. Seriously.


  1. Am I alone in seeing this as being
    a) referencing the exact same study as the previous article
    b) reaching completely different conclusions than the previous article

    I can tell that they are based off the same underlying research, but I feel like I just read something completely, 100% different than in the last one ( http://news.discovery.com/animals/sharks/why-shark-exmbryos-eat-each-other-130501.htm )

    Is discovery.com just crap?  the two uterus thing seems like critical information that either they or I just do not understand

  2. “What happens in a tiger shark’s uterus stays in a tiger shark’s uterus”

    That was the original tag line for the move HANGOVER  3
