Celebrate these jaw-dropping animals with a full lineup of special events including hands-on activities, presentations, feedings, and more. Don’t just watch Shark Week on TV; experience it! From July 22-30, hear shark talks by education naturalists, and come see shark eggs and feel shark teeth at the Shark Lab. Watch our huge sevengill sharks swim just inches from your face, reach out and touch a live leopard shark, take part in a Feed the Sharks tour or join a special 11am Behind-the-Scenes tour available for a limited time. Make it a Shark Week you won’t forget!
Shark-tivities at the Shark Lab:
There are over 400 different species of sharks, each one with a very different diet ranging from plankton to whales. Using real shark jaws, join our naturalists to discover which sharks eat what.
Who laid that Egg:
There’s nothing “primitive” about sharks. Come see real shark eggs laid by our own swell sharks and see how sharks have survived five extinctions to become top survivors.
Did you know that sharks are older than dinosaurs? Learn about prehistoric sharks during this special presentation.
Find out what it takes to “wrangle” a shark for research. By researching sharks in the wild, we may be able to help protect sharks and keep our marine ecosystems in balance.
