Love sharks? We just added a beautiful sandbar shark to the Open Sea exhibit. Believe it or not, this shark originally came from Hawaii on an airplane. Since then, it’s been growing up behind the scenes at our Animal Research and Care Center in Marina, until we felt it was large enough to go on display!

Today’s fun fact for Shark Week: How many shark species can you see when you visit? We have hammerhead and sandbar sharks in the Open Sea; leopard sharks in our Kelp Forest, Aviary and Deep Reefs; horn and swell sharks in our Enchanted Kelp Forest touch pools. We have sevengills, spiny dogfish and angel sharks in Monterey Bay Habitats. In summer we’ve had a white shark in the Open Sea. We have guitarfish in the Aviary and skates and rays in many exhibits. Okay, which species is this?
