AQUARIUM-SHARK RAYS
Newport Aquarium now caring for 6 newborn shark rays, among first born in captivity

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, February 2, 2014 9:02 AM EST
NEWPORT, Ky.


The Newport Aquarium is celebrating the births of six healthy shark rays.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports they are among the first of their kind born in captivity.

Three males and three females were born Jan. 24, but aquarium officials waited a few days to make the announcement.

General Curator Mark Dvorak said the animal husbandry team wanted some time to observe the newborns and wanted to see how many would survive. A seventh pup died shortly after birth.

Dvorak said the pups were removed from their mother, Sweet Pea, because sharks don't care for their young.

The births came earlier than expected. The aquarium had just announced on Jan. 14 that Sweet Pea was pregnant.
