Onlookers soon noticed that the animal was giving birth while thrashing on the sand. Several animal lovers near the scene tried to drag the shark back into water, but said the predator continued to swim to the shore.

Hammerhead pups are extremely independent and often swim away from their mom shortly after birth, as was the case with these newborns. They will spend the next few weeks fending for themselves in the shallow waters around the beach before heading into the ocean.
