ATLANTA (AP) - The world's largest aquarium is home to 12 new shark babies.
The spotted wobbegong shark pups were born last week in the Georgia Aquarium's 6-million-gallon Ocean Voyager tank. They weighed about 2 ounces and were about 8 inches long.
It's the third shark birth for the aquarium. Previously, the zebra sharks and the bonnethead sharks have had babies.
The spotted wobbegong looks more like a large spotted catfish than a shark. It is considered a "near threatened" species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
