Eight baby sharks have been hatched at an aquarium in Cornwall.
The bamboo sharks were born at the Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay after their eggs were discovered in the aquarium's Giant Ocean display.
The sharks are usually found in the Pacific and Indonesian oceans in shallow tidal pools and coral reefs where they feed on shellfish.
They are completely harmless to humans and, when fully grown, they will be about 1m (3ft) long, the aquarium said.
The aquarium said: "It was important to remove the eggs from the main ocean display as soon as possible to protect them from the unwanted attentions of the other sharks and rays."
The young sharks currently have distinctive dark and light banding. However, this will fade away as they get older.
If all goes according to plan, the sharks will be transferred to the aquarium's Tropical Shark Lagoon within a couple of months, the aquarium said.
