Sand Tiger Shark Fun Fact

Look closely at the sand tiger sharks in the "Ocean Beyond the Sound" exhibit. Their snout and jaws are covered in tiny holes. These are receptors for the sharks' "sixth sense" – their ability to detect bioelectric fields emitted by other animals (including potential prey).

Animal Habitats
Tour the Aquarium and observe animal behaviors, movements and body coverings to learn how the creatures are adapted to the varying aquatic habitats. Create an animal home, either by visiting the Meerkats exhibit and sketching out their burrows OR by assembling a basic salt-water aquarium. Play a sea turtle nesting game to discover why sea turtles are endangered and what we can do to help protect them, and more.  2 hrs., 45 mi. $18 per Scout. /  Try-it: 1 hr., 45 mi. $15 per Scout.
