These three NEW Sand Tiger Sharks are making their home in the Surrounded by Sharks exhibit! The 2 males and 1 female are part of a world-wide Species Survival Plan coordinated through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Biologists and Aquarists working with these critically endangered sharks will share data and research with the ultimate goal of saving them from extinction. These giant sharks measure up between 6 and 7 feet long. You’ll easily be able to pick them out from the other sharks by their big toothy grin!
Let’s welcome the NEW Sand Tiger Sharks to Newport Aquarium with their own special names!
