Get up close and very personal with the Aquarium’s largest exhibit and its biggest predators with the new Shark Keeper Program! Each participant will prepare to feed the sharks and other fishes in the 120,000-gallon Lost City of Atlantis Exhibit. Then, they’ll get the once-in-a-lifetime chance to pole feed our sand tiger sharks! Participants also experience a tour of other behind-the-scenes animal care work areas and take home a real-life shark tooth.
