Can you name this shark? One of the species of sharks you will see while scuba diving in The Downtown Aquarium is this unique looking animal. When they are young they have a unique Zebra pattern. As they mature those stripes begin to break apart and appear as the spots you see in the photo. They are known for their mellow and calm nature making them a favorite among divers. Like all shark species they are vital to our marine ecosystem. To learn more about the zebra shark and other shark species consider joining us for our Shark Aware PADI Specialty course!
