|A blacknose shark, Carcharhinus acronotus|
We have two female blacknose sharks currently residing in the Giant Ocean Tank. Their names are Cat and Berry, named after Bahamas cays (for reference our bonnethead sharks are named after Florida keys). They are about 4 feet long, and are probably fully grown at this point. Their diet here at the Aquarium consists of a variety of seafood: capelin, herring, mackerel, clam, squid and shrimp. We feed them once per day, 5 days per week, with 2 fasting days per week. This ensures they will stay interested in the feedings... yet full enough so that they are not ogling their GOT neighbors ;)
Come by the Aquarium to see our blacknose sharks in action live!
