In Adventure Aquarium's Ocean Realm Exhibit, guests come face-to-face with 760,000 gallons of seawater. Go ahead. Press your nose against one of the two movie-screen-sized window and catch sight of southern stingrays, silky sharks, zebra shark, hammerhead shark and more!
Adventure Aquarium has the distinction of being the only aquarium in the United States with a great hammerhead shark on exhibit. Although there are nine different species of hammerhead shark in the world, the great hammerhead is the biggest.
The silky shark is named for the smooth texture of its skin, which is made up of densely packed scales called dermal denticles. It is one of the most abundant sharks and can be found in tropical waters around the world.
