Size: Up to 14 feet Habitat/Range: Coastal waters of the Atlantic and western Pacific Oceans
The nurse shark is a common inshore bottom-dwelling shark, found in tropical and subtropical waters, and its typical habitats are reefs, channels between mangrove islands and sand flats. It can reach lengths of up to 14 feet. It is also nocturnal, spending the day in large inactive groups of up to 40 individuals. Hidden under submerged ledges or in crevices within the reef, the nurse shark seems to prefer specific resting sites and will return to them each day after the night's hunting.
Our sharks wait all year for their favorite holiday...and it's that time again! Bring your chums Friday, July 21 thru Sunday, July 30 as we celebrate Shark Week with the largest collection of sharks on the East Coast - only at Adventure Aquarium. Throughout the week enjoy Shark Week programming, Shark and Ray In-water Encounters offered every day and more.
