The Burj Al Arab has just opened its new-look aquarium, which houses 4,000 fish across 40 species. As well as providing a Bond villain-style backdrop for Al Mahara restaurant, the aquarium is home to Zebedee the zebra shark, who has recently confounded scientists by laying eggs (which have since hatched into healthy pups) without ever having met a male. Clever zebra.
