Two newborn zebra sharks make their debut in south China

At Chimelong Ocean Kingdom in Zhuhai City, south China's Guangdong Province, two newly born zebra sharks made their public debut on Wednesday.

This is the first successful breeding of two zebra sharks in Guangdong Province. They were born on April 30 and May 25, respectively.

Juvenile zebra sharks are covered with black and white stripes. When they grow up, the pattern on their bodies becomes leopard-like with light brown spots. Adult zebra sharks are about 1.5 meters long on average, with the biggest about 3.5 meters long. It takes four to five years for them to reach adulthood.

Baby zebra sharks are expected to return to their parents when they are around half a year old.
