Image of shark eggsWe have three bamboo shark eggs developing on exhibit in Wild Reef. Check them out in the lagoon area. No joke -– the big round object in each egg is the yolk sac. The eggs incubate in about 128 days at 78 degrees Fahrenheit. The incubation period is temperature-dependent. While you’re in Wild Reef, be sure to see the juvenile saddleback clownfish that were born at Shedd. You’ll find them in one of the small square habitats between the sharks and the lagoon. The littlest fish is about three-quarters of an inch long. But see them soon –- they’re growing fast!
