This is one trip to the beach this family will never forget.
A group in Cape Town, South Africa was spending a day at the beach when one of them spotted a shark on the beach — dead, but something inside was moving.
According to Live Leak, the family approached the shark, one with a knife to open the pregnant shark's belly, another filming the event. When they cut open the shark, they discovered three shark pups, alive inside the mother's belly.
The man doing the cutting is clearly hesitant to handle the pups; unsurprising, since sharks are born with a full set of teeth. And there's no need to worry about the baby sharks swimming off into the ocean without their mother, eithter. Once a shark is born, it swims away from its mother to fend for itself. Thanks to this group of curious beachgoers, three lives really were saved on the beach that day.
We couldn't agree more with the person overheard at the end of this video: "I think that is the coolest thing I have ever seen."Read More »from Watch this beachgoer save three shark pups from dead mother's belly
