    Monterey Bay Aquarium: Sandbar Shark on Exhibit

    [Monterey Bay Aquarium release]

    Sandbar Shark on Exhibit!


    For the first time ever, the Aquarium is exhibiting a sandbar shark, 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, which went on exhibit April 26, is 43 pounds and
    measures four feet, six inches.


    The sandbar shark (carcharhinus plumbeus) is one of the largest coastal pelagic sharks, found worldwide in subtropical waters, and can be eight feet long.
    True to its name, this beautiful shark is often found in sandy or muddy areas
    close to land. Also known as the brown or thickskin shark, it's easily
    recognized by its large dorsal (top) fin. It's doing very well on exhibit!
    Check out the new shark on our live web cam!
