At the Aquarium
First Friday Facebook
It’s time for another First Friday Facebook Live.
This time, in celebration of Shark Week, Taylor and Nick visited the Science of Sharks exhibit in the West Wing. They talked about the incredible diversity of sharks and the important roles they play in their ecosystems.
The educators also spoke about the two main forms of shark reproduction: laying eggs outside the mother’s body (oviparous) and live birth (viviparous). Did you know there are 11 different species of sharks on exhibit at the Aquarium? Or that 80 percent of all sharks are 4 feet long or less? Watch the video and learn more!
