baby cow is called a calf. A female calf is sometimes called a heifer calf and a male a bull calf.
How do sharks poop?
Surprisingly, sharks do fart. Sometimes, when at the surface of the water, they gulp air. The air then comes into their body and is emitted through their cloaca. A cloaca is an opening that serves as a urinary, digestive, and reproductive tract.
How long do sharks carry their babies?
Pregnancy lasts years for some species.
Some scientists estimate that basking shark gestation lasts up to 3.5 years. Frilled sharks may also carry their pups for more than three years. Some smaller species are at the other end of the spectrum. Bonnethead sharks, for example, give birth after around five months.
