About the Event

Sharks in a pool? Yes! This is just one of the many cool things we will  see this week for #SurfScience at @sandowaydiscovery on our virtual  field trip

Did you know? The Nurse Shark, gets its name from  Greek Roots. It may come from the strange sucking sounds they make when  searching for prey in the sand. As with all sharks, this giant fish is  incredibly interesting and very important to the delicate marine  ecosystem, especially near fragile coral reefs.

They can get  quite large with a length of up to 4.5 meters (15ft) as adults. These  large creatures reach weights as high as 150 kilograms (330 pounds).  Typically, they live to between 25 and 35 years of age.

While  most fish, including sharks, must keep moving in order to breath, Nurse  Sharks can remain motionless while resting on the sea floor by facing  against the flow of water and pumping the water through their mouths and  gills

This next week our #SurfScience had an in-person trip  planned to @sandowaydiscovery but with “shelter in place” happening in S  Florida, Mr Evan is bringing us to @sandowaydiscovery virtually on  Wednesday at 10:30am to teach us even more about sharks
