GREEN MORAY EEL
Growing up to 8 feet long, the Green Moray Eel of the Atlantic Ocean continuously open and close their mouths to pump oxygen and water over their gills. This exposes their many teeth, giving them a fierce appearance.
Recognized by its exposed teeth and its ferocious appearance, the Sandtiger Shark is the largest shark in the aquarium. Native to warm waters the Sandtiger can reach lengths of 10 feet and upward of 400 pounds.
Considered one of the most primitive of the bony fishes, tarpons are super predators that are hungry most of the time. They can grow up to 7 feet in length and weigh up to 286 pounds!
GREEN SEA TURTLE
Green Sea Turtles are open-ocean travelers, but dine in shallow water on sea grass, algae, and jellyfish. Destruction of their food source and nesting habitat, and the harvesting of their eggs has placed this species on the Endangered Animals List.
Nurse Sharks get their name from the sucking noise they make when feeding. The noise sounds remarkably like a baby sucking on a bottle. Nurse sharks are nocturnal and will often rest on the sea floor during the day, sometimes piled on top of each other!
