As you may have heard, the Aquarium now has a young female tiger shark (Galeocerdo cuvier) on exhibit in Shark Lagoon! In honor of this groundbreaking display, I’ll be writing about the beautiful girl for my next couple blogs. Recently, I had the opportunity to be up close and personal for a Saturday morning feeding.

The Aquarium has many amazing programs that go on beyond our normal operating hours. I haven’t had the opportunity to take advantage of them before, but recently my schedule opened up and one night, I was able to!

Whew! It’s been a busy summer here at the Aquarium! Extraordinary whale watches, energetic day camps, packed Behind-the-scenes Tours, and hopping Summer Sundays. Our animal encounters have also been quite popular, and one of the encounters I’ve had the pleasure of leading recently focuses on the ocean’s most perfect predators: SHARKS! If you have ever wanted to have an up-close and personal, hands-on experience with these magnificent creatures, then this is the encounter for you.

Shark Lagoon welcomed a new resident late last year—a sandbar shark! Her name is Ginger Bling and, let me tell you, she is one gorgeous fishy!

Lots of colorful, vertically-compressed fish are swimming around Shark Lagoon, nibbling on the walls. The sharks can be touched but not these little fish. Trust me, you would not want to touch them anyway. They are called tangs and they live in Shark Lagoon because they are on a mission to control the algae.
