A Florida teen and his girlfriend were fishing for sharks near Ponce de Leon Park in Punta Gorda when they received a bit of a surprise.
While fishing for sharks with his dad and girlfriend, Calvin Conger reeled in a stingray only to find out he'd soon become a midwife. Upon pulling the ray in to the boat, Calvin's dad noticed something awry.
What was happening was the stingray was midway through a live birth of two lil bebe stingrays, and ol papa Conger stepped in to save the day by squeezing them out of mama ray's belly.
Im not sure whether to be horrified or aroused, any suggestion? Let's roll that beautiful bean footage one more time, shall we?
As you saw in the video all three stingrays were released to live out their days in the water.

LandoGriffin: I'm not saying that sharks or rays are mammals, far from it, but they aren`t true fish either. They deserve their own classification separate from fish.

@CrakrJak - although many sharks give live birth, about half use an egg case. They don't produce milk so they aren`t mammals (in contrast to a platypus, who lays eggs but produces milk so is a mammal) therefore sharks having live birth but not producing milk is nevertheless still part of the "fish" class.
If sharks and rays aren`t fish, they would have to invent a brand new class for them, since they certainly don`t fit in any other class.
