Tropical Shark Touch Tank

Get up close and personal with sharks thanks to our shark touch tank! In our Tropical Shark Touch Tank, you have the opportunity to touch White-Spotted Bamboo Sharks, Marbled Sharks, and Epaulette Sharks. These species of sharks are found mostly in the tropical waters of the Pacific Ocean. They are all members of the Catshark Family, which are a bottom-dwelling species. A notable characteristic of these sharks in our shark touch tank are the whiskers or barbels on their mouths, which help them locate food that may be buried. In addition to our sharks in our shark touch tank, we have invertebrates, including a Sea Star that resembles a chocolate chip cookie!
