How do sharks mate?
White shark sex has never been documented, so we are not sure! However, other species of shark mate pretty dramatically. The males tend to sneak up onto the female (who is usually bigger than the male). The male will then bite the female around the gills to stabilize her and he will insert one of his claspers into her cloacae to deliver his sperm. Check out this video of lemon sharks mating from Cocos Islands:
Here in Gansbaai, we have seen female white sharks with these tell-tale bite marks around the gills – so shark love just may be in the water around us!
