Because Great Whites Aren't Awful Enough

While doing a little bit of research, I stumbled onto this little tidbit:
The shark pup's powerful jaws begin to develop in the first month. The unborn sharks participate in intrauterine-cannibalism: stronger pups consume their weaker womb-mates. Delivery is in spring and summer.

I don't think it needs to be said, but this is one of the more grotesque things I've read this week. And it's certainly a first for me.
