For the first time ever, the Aquarium is exhibiting a sandbar shark (carcharhinus plumbeus), in our million-gallon Open Sea exhibit. The male shark, originally from Hawaii, has been growing up behind the scenes in our Animal Research and Care Center in Marina. The new shark is 43 pounds and measures four feet, six inches, and you can see it now on our live web cam!

    A hammerhead shark keeps swimming JUST into view and then quickly turns out of sight. I think it’s camera shy.
