Our bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas), the only one on display in the western United States, will be moving to a new home out of state soon. She is outgrowing her current habitat in Shark Lagoon.

A New Addition to the Shark Lagoon Family!
We have a new addition to the Shark Lagoon family, a bonnethead shark. These sharks have a head shape similar to a hammerhead. It is so cute! Our newest addition is about 46 centimeters (18 inches) long on its way to a length of about 0.7-1 m (2.3-3.3 ft.). It is adjusting well to its new home and eating well on a diet of restaurant quality seafood.
