It’s a unique place for a variety of reasons including being home to the largest collection of sharks on the East Coast, being the only aquarium in the world to exhibit hippos, and being one of only six aquariums in the US to have Little Blue penguins as permanent residents. They’re also home to the largest shark bridge in the world, the only Great Hammerhead Shark on display in the U.S., and a 40-foot shark tunnel that traverses and underwater world.
