Thank you! They generally grow to around 35 inches (give or take). In the future, I might put my hand in certain photos to give a better sense of scale.

I agree, the embryos are very chrysalis-like. I got to keep the one that was vacated by our newest shark, but it shriveled up like a raisin. I wish I had gotten a photo of the horn shark embryos too, because they have this neat corkscrew shape.
