horned-shark-egg-case.jpg (87309 bytes) Horned Shark egg case. These eggs turn as they come down the egg canal because of the spiral fold, which also tend to hold them in place where they are laid. The eggs are the same size as a chickens' egg, but take nine months to hatch. The horned shark deposits its eggs in weeds at the edge of the Bay, and sometimes screws them tightly between stones high in the intertidal zone where they are safer from predation.
