Pacific angel shark is born in captivity

September 19, 2007|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A city aquarium has announced what it says is the first-ever birth in captivity of a Pacific angel shark, a sand-burrowing species resembling a ray that lives along the West Coast.

Because of the difficulty of feeding angel sharks, divers are hand-feeding the pup, said Reid Withrow, director of husbandry at Aquarium of the Bay.
