Good news for shark aficionados: the South Carolina Aquarium's Great Ocean Tank has just doubled its number of sharks! Four sandbar sharks and a black tip shark recently arrived to join the 700 other animals living in this 385,000 gallon viewing tank, a highlight of this massive aquarium. Their neighbors include loggerhead turtles, jellyfish and scalpel-tailed surgeonfish. The aquarium, which is housed in an impressive contemporary building on a ledge overlooking Charleston Harbor, showcases the various aquatic environments of South Carolina and beyond. Another highlight is Penguin Planet, where you can watch Magellanic penguins waddle and play.
