Ripley's Aquarium of Myrtle Beach Opens Jaw-some Exhibit, "Sharks - Perfect Predators"


Myrtle Beach, SC- The innovative, educational and fascinating new exhibit at Ripley's Aquarium is definitely a "Jaw-some" exhibit. 
Featuring over a dozen species of sharks along with over 30 hands-on interactive displays, the exhibit will truly leave any visitor with a better understanding of these great creatures.

"Sharks" takes visitors beyond the superstitions surrounding sharks and shark attacks - exploring their daily struggle to survive. The show, created specifically for Ripley's Aquarium, is free with paid admission and will be on display throughout 2011.


"Our Sharks - Perfect Predators exhibit provides guests with an opportunity to appreciate these magnificent predators. For millions of years sharks have ruled the seas. Live animals - both great and small, video and interactives, will fascinate and educate," said Peter MacIntyre, General Manager of Ripley's Aquarium.


During a walkthrough of this amazing exposition visitors will be able to:

Guess what unusual manmade objects have been found in a shark's stomach.

Experience "shark vision."

Witness the force of a shark bite!

See why sharks have endured for millions of years.
