The sharks become accustomed to their new home. Employees at the Living Planet Aquarium in Sandy moved five baby sharks from their transport tanks to their new home in the aquarium Wednesday, July 11, 2012. The sharks were sent from Australia and should be viewable later this week after they have had time to acclimate to their new surroundings.

They each measure approximately 3 feet long with the potential to reach up to 8 feet in length. A new giant shovelnose ray and a white spotted guitarfish will also accompany the sharks in their new habitat.
