Evenings at the Aquarium with a sevengill shark

Travel website Kathika just named the Monterey Bay Aquarium one of the best aquariums for shark viewing, and with good reason. If you want to see sharks up close and personal, there's no better place to do it than at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which is the only aquarium that has ever exhibited either a great white shark or (as seen a few weeks ago) a rare prickly shark. If you're a shark fan, you'll want to head over to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and check out its new resident, a male sevengill shark. This shark, over seven feet long, resides in the Monterey Bay Habitats exhibit. (Check out this video of an aquarist feeding a shark of the same breed!) Sevengill sharks will eat almost anything, according to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, but can go for weeks without eating. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is giving visitors an extra chance to admire the sevengill shark with its Evenings by the Bay, every Saturday and Sunday night from 6-8pm now through September 6. Enjoy wine or a beer, snacks, and live jazz music while wandering the Monterey Bay Aquarium's exhibits. On Saturday nights, guests can also make reservations for dinner at the Portola Restaurant overlooking Monterey Bay.
