Sandbar Whaler sharks – the most abundant species of shark in the western Atlantic Ocean – are a major attraction at the Melbourne Aquarium. Despite a formidable exterior, they are not considered dangerous to humans. These sharks possess a characteristic dorsal fin and can grow up to 2.4 metres long. Come face to face with these awe-inspiring creatures at the aquarium.
Thankyou. It is said that it one is much more likely to die in a car accident or drowning, than by being bitten by a shark. Yet its still good to be aware of the dangers. This one looks interesting from the upside down perspective. :)
