Animal Encounter: Sharks!

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.

Tangs versus algae | David  buttonLink

Tangs versus algae

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.
