SCIENCE WORD OF THE WEEK!

swow mermaids purse

Hello and Happy Monday! I’m so happy to see everyone here at the University! We have a great science word for you today! Today’s word is Mermaid’s Purse!

A Mermaid’s purse is the egg that some ray and shark species lay. The casing is made of protein and surrounds a fertilized egg. Mermaid’s purses are laid by the female and left until the egg hatches. Often people find the empty casings on the shore.

Have any of you seen a real mermaid’s purse?
