Rare sharks on display at Dubai Aquarium


5/17/2010

Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks, among the most difficult species to be featured in aquariums, are now on display at Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo. The sharks were conditioned in specialised pens from a young age in Taiwan and then grown to optimum size before the international transit was
