Seven cute six-inch stingrays have become the star attraction at the Sea Life London Aquarium after being born to two females who had no male contact for two years.
Staff at the London tourist attraction first thought the mothers were bloated - before the arrival of seven pups, who have now been put on public display.
Paul Hale, head curator at the aquarium, told the Daily Mail: 'Rays have been known to store sperm and not give birth until they decide the timing is right, but it's not something I've seen before in my eight years at the aquarium.
'The staff noticed two female stingrays looking bloated so gave them a health check and were surprised to discover they were both expecting, considering there have been no males in their display for so long.'
He added: 'Rays are already one of the most popular creatures at the aquarium; so these pups will be very popular with our visitors this summer.'
