EARTH A New Wild | Student Scientists Tag a Baby Lemon Shark | PBS


http://pbs.org/earth-a-new-wild
Premieres Wednesdays February 4-25, 2015 on PBS

Just after birth, the newborn lemon sharks are measured, tagged and a DNA sample is taken before the young sharks are returned to the mangroves. This provides information to an ongoing database to back up theories that lemon sharks return to the same location they were born to give birth themselves.
