New Great White Shark at the Monterey Bay Aquarium

Great White Shark In Captivity at The Monterey Bay Aquarium
     The Monterey Bay Aquarium now has a new resident in their recently refurbished million gallon outer bay exhibit it's a juvenile Great White Shark. Great White Sharks are very difficult to hold in captivity usually. Several aquariums have had problems getting their captive sharks to eat or even live more than a few days or weeks. The Monterey Bay Aquarium has had several successes with their white shark program. This White Shark will be their sixth one over the years. It was only recently put into the tank and it's still being watched closely to monitor how it acts around it tank mates and to see if the White Shark will eat normally. The Captive Great White Sharks that they have had in the past have usually been older sharks. This one was recently caught off the Southern California Coast and the Biologists at the Aquarium think it's only a couple months old due to it's size. Usually the Great White Sharks That they Monterey Bay Aquarium catch eventually have to be released due to their size or how aggressive they are. Most of them are juveniles so this one may be able to stay around a little longer since it's starting out a little smaller. So if you get the chance this weekend head out to The Monterey Bay Aquarium to check out the Great White Shark.
