Woman Crush Wednesday: Celebrating Mamas in Zoology!

Do you like sharks? Yeah, that's a no from me too!

Well thankfully, it wasn't a no for the Shark Lady, Eugenie Clark. Eugenie was a American ichthyologist(a scientist who studies fish) who was known for research on shark behavior and for being a pioneer in the field of scuba diving!

Some of her notable works include discovering a natural shark repellant from the fish Moses sole and that sleeping sharks don't need to move to breathe! She also helped create the very first IMAX film. (wikipedia)

Being the Shark Lady wasn't enough for Eugenie Clark though, she was also a proud mama of four children.

If you have a shark loving kiddo in your house, here are some websites/books to check out about the Shark Lady!
