Sandbar Sharks Make Their Home in Aquarium in Hungary

BUDAPEST – Two sandbar sharks have found a new home in Budapest’s Tropicarium aquarium, where they are to live alongside bowmouth guitarfish, butterflyfish, angelfish and many others.

The epa images showed one of the sharks being carried in a net to the tank where it will most likely spend the rest of its life watching gawking crowds.

Sandbar sharks are found in coastal waters in large parts of the world and are known for their very long fins, which often get them trapped in nets.

Despite their size and fondness for shallow water, they are not considered dangerous to humans and are not believed to attack people, meaning they are popular for swimming with.

Female sandbar sharks can grow up to 2.5 meters (over 8 feet), while males rarely reach 2 meters in length.
