Barry White Music Gets Sharks in a Frenzy

samzenpus posted more than 4 years ago | from the sex-shark dept.

Idle 15

Last month we ran a story about the Sea Life London Aquarium using Barry White music to convince their zebra shark Zorro to get romantic with their female shark. As crazy as it seems the plan worked, maybe too well. The aquarium is now warning guests about the shark's frisky frenzies as they are public, frequent and a little on the rough side. "We are absolutely delighted that Zorro is finally getting it together with his intended but the courtship rituals of the zebra shark can appear quite violent and some guests have been a little alarmed," says deputy curator Jamie Oliver.

Hell, given that he drew in snakes that didn't even have ears, is it any wonder that sharks, which are nature's most efficiently designed loving machine, would be affected?

Efficient as in, time efficient. Could well still be true, but not something to be flattered about ;)

Isn't it common knowledge that Barry White and sex goes hand in hand? Can't have one without the other.

We all have. Humanity is Barry White's sex doll. Shit, son, where've you been these past infinities?

Thanks a bunch; I feel rather dirty now. I think I'll take a scalding hot shower, followed by a nice soak in a vat of chlorine bleach.

With Slashdotters, sex and hand-in-hand aren't what comes to mind...

It is said that the male shark bites the female as a form of courtship behavior. Male sharks bite the female to show its interest. Maybe Barry just gave him some courage.

I dunno, (1)

10 comments so far? It seems that Barry White-sharks-sex combo just doesn't cut it on /.

I think they should try it on pandas.. they are always having trouble getting them to mate in captivity.
