Shark Facts #1: Sandbar Sharks
The Sandbar Shark “is the most abundant species of large shark in the Western Atlantic. It has a global distribution” found in the warmer waters around every continent except Antarctica. You can spot them on the live cam as the “sandbar shark’s most distinguishing characteristic is its taller than average first dorsal fin.” They typically grow to about 6 ft. (Florida Museum of Natural History)
The brand new Shark Lagoon Live Cam at the Aquarium of the Pacific features sandbar, sand tiger, zebra, nurse, and blacktip reef sharks, as well as a freshwater sawfish and reticulated whiptail rays.
