How do sharks mate?

Asked by Korbin Howe

All male sharks have claspers, extensions of their pelvic fins used to transfer sperm. Once inserted, the male expels sperm into the female along with seawater, and the eggs are fertilized inside the female’s body. Some sharks are egg-laying, while others are live-bearing.
