We recently added three spiny dogfish sharks to the Monterey Bay Habitats exhibit, and will be releasing two in the near future! These sharks are aggressive and have a reputation of relentlessly pursuing their prey—though we don’t have to worry about this on exhibit, where our animals are well fed by aquarists.
