Not your typical catch, but a group of fishermen in Venice, Florida lured something much bigger than they planned. Try a 12-foot hammerhead shark!

They brought it to shore only to realize a lot more rescuing had to be done.

The shark was injured, in fact a big bite had been taken out of it. And as if that wasn't exciting enough, the shark was also pregnant.

The fishermen had to pull the babies out one by one, there were 20 in all.

Unfortunately, the mother did not survive.
