The Aquarium and Shark Lab by Group ECCO in Hendersonville reported in a Facebook post on Tuesday that its stingray Charlotte is anticipating.

Be that as it may, as per the aquarium, there’s an off-putting thing about the pregnancy since they have no male stingrays in the tank.

In any case, there are two potential clarifications for this “once in a blue moon science secret.” One way is an extremely uncommon cycle considered parthenogenesis, in which the eggs create all alone without preparation and make a clone of the mother, as per BJ Ramer, organizer and head of the aquarium.

Ramer told NBC partner WRAL that they started doing ultrasounds on Charlotte in September when she began to “expand.” The aquarium’s vet recognized the development as eggs and said noticed that in spite of the shortfall of a male beam, “there have been not many instances of parthenogenesis in beams.”

The second clarification for Charlotte’s pregnancy is nibbled more peculiar science. Ramer said the stingray might have mated with a male shark that was added to the tank in July.

“In mid-July 2023, we moved two 1-year-old white spot bamboo guys into that tank. There was nothing we could find authoritatively about their development rate, so we didn’t figure there would be an issue,” Ramer told the station. “We began to see indentations on Charlotte, yet saw other fish nipping at her, so we moved fish, yet at the same the gnawing proceeded.”

As indicated by SeaWorld, sharks chomp females on the blades during the mating system to clutch them. Ramer said Charlotte had a few chomps on her edges of her blade.

Charlotte is accepted to convey up to four little guys and could convey out of the blue. A DNA test will be finished after the little guys are destined to uncover whether they are a cross of breeds or a clone of the mother.
