"Once successfully hatched, the Aquarium and Sharklab closely monitored the pups to help them grow in a healthy manner," Malta National Aquarium curator Mike Hutchison told Malta Today.
"Being top predators, the sharks are likely to survive in the wild."
"The fish market vendors have been extremely helpful in letting Sharklab Malta remove these egg cases from the female sharks," the aquarium wrote on its Facebook page.
"These eggs are then kept in a specialized system within the aquarium. The system is kept separate from all the other exhibits to stop cross contamination and the system is temperature controlled."
