Shark Uterus, the New Fountain of Youth

Scientists have recently developed a completely synthetic substitute for a vertebrate uterus, successfully bringing several wobbegong shark pups to term inside the acrylic tank. The ultimate goal is to revive the severely endangered nurse shark population by increasing the birth rate of live sharks in captivity, a task that has long eluded scientists.

I, of course, see this breakthrough as just another step closer to the ultimate goal of cloning myself and thereafter leading an army of my clones to world domination. Of course, one noted benefit of this particular step forward is that my clones will undoubtedly be born with gills and several rows of serrated, razor-sharp teeth, reducing the number of clones necessary for world domination by at least a factor of ten.
