3:35 Our Changing World

The Island Bay Marine Education Centre, on Wellington's south coast, was left with more than it bargained for when a guest - a mature carpet shark - began to lay eggs during her brief stay.  The mother shark has since returned to the ocean, but her eggs remained in the tanks, until Millie hatched almost a year later.  Lucy Smith pops in to see how the baby shark is doing.
