Well, we are happy to report that we have movement.
In the effort of keeping it real I will not let you believe we are little shark whisperers over here. We bought one…it was a dud. We bought a second and it still hasn’t moved. So we did what any desperate wanna-be-shark-parents would do and got another.
We are really lucky to have an outstanding local fish store that stands by their products and let us bring the dud back in. Holler for good business.
They say the third time is a charm, our fingers are crossed that you all aren’t making that up. I will say it is like watching a little miracle when we watch it swimming in there. Now I know how all you expectant mama’s feel at your ultrasounds….kinda…sort of….not at all.
We’ve been watching our little baby grow day by day, but there is a problem.
He is not growing.
Then magically this happened.
Our shark egg cloned itself right before our eyes.
If you are buying that then I have a really cool sandbox to sell you.
Here is what really happened….Tim gave me the puppy eyes until I let him buy another one.
He said that he needed two so that he can compare them.
Like a science experiment. He is smart like that.
His thorough research has shown that…our original egg was probably a dud.
We are going to keep the first egg – affectionately named Chihuahua by the lovely Sandy – in the tank just in case, but odds are looking about as good as the Rams season. We are going all in on baby shark number two….who still needs a name y’all.
Maybe when we get some real movement we will post a video to pull at your heart strings….everyone loves babies right?
We have been researching ever since.
Now that I re-watch that video, I feel like we should clean our egg up.
Tim will be checking in to give you an “egglet update” and give you all the specs in case you decide you need a little baby shark in your life as well.
It is a learning experience for us and we have been told that something like one in six don’t ever hatch. We have been holding light up and looking for some movement, T says the little guy is growing but I have yet to see him. If you never hear about our shark egg again, you will know things didn’t go so well!
Say a little prayer that we will soon be proud shark parents….
