Stop by the Visitor Center lobby for some sharky arts & crafts!
Visit our student volunteers at their Shark Carts for an interactive learning experience.
During Shark Week, we will create a poll through Facebook (@MoodyGardens) and Twitter (@MoodyGardens) to decide what we should name our new shark mascot. Join in the fun and cast your vote on our Facebook page to help us decide what to call our new, finned friend. The new name will be announced on Sunday, July 30th.
Shark attacks occur all over the world, but a majority happen in the waters around Australia, the southern tip of Africa, Hawaii, and Florida. In these locations, the water is particularly warm, which attracts many beach-goers into the shark’s natural habitat.
Most shark attacks are a case of mistaken identity. During their attack, the victim is mistaken for prey and rarely catches a glimpse of their attacker, who flees the scene after inflicting a single bite. Rarely do sharks make repeated attacks, intentionally consuming a human victim. How easy is it for a shark to mistake a human for its prey? From a shark’s point of view, a surfer or swimmer can look quite similar to a turtle or seal.
Look up when you're walking through the Aquarium Pyramid Shark Tunnel to see if you can tell the difference between a surfer and a seal or a turtle and a flotation device.
Showtimes: 12:25 PM, 3:20 PM
