If it’s not enough to simply see Sharks up close at Adventure Aquarium, you also have the rare opportunity to actually TOUCH and FEEL certain species in our Touch-a-Shark exhibit, sponsored by Horizon Blue Cross of New Jersey.
Among these species are our Bamboo Sharks, including:
White Spotted Bamboo Sharks – Able to grow up to 3 feet long, White-spotted Bamboo Sharks are nocturnal and prey on small fish and invertebrates at night. The White-spotted Bamboo Sharks natural banded and spotted camouflaging, makes the inshore coral reefs a safe place to hide.
Brown Banded Bamboo Sharks – Able to grow up to 3 ½ feet long, young Brown-banded Bamboo Sharks have dark stripes along its bodies. However, as they mature into adulthood, the stripes fade. The Brown-banded Bamboo Sharks can be found hiding in the crevices of inshore coral reefs.
