ABQ BioPark Aquarium welcomes two new sharks to the shark tank

If you haven't heard the news, the ABQ BioPark Aquarium has recently welcomed two new creatures of the sea to their tank. Two new sandbar sharks are now swimming in the Shark Tank exhibit alongside several other sandbar sharks and four other shark species.

The sharks are both females and came from the Sea Life Aquarium in Tempe, Arizona, where they had outgrown their tanks. They are four and five feet long now, and may grow up to seven feet! Sandbar sharks can be found in coastal regions around the world and are considered threatened because of overfishing. They can live between 19-21 years.

Take a peek at this video of how the sharks were transported to their new home at the BioPark.
