Sandbar Shark – Dark Sandbar
- Nickname: Dark Sandbar
- Scientific Name: Carcharhinus plumbeus
- Arrival Date: July 21, 2004
- Location: Atlantic Shark tank
- Gender: Female
- Distinguishing Characteristics: “Dark Sandbar” is much darker in color and smaller than the other sandbar shark in the Atlantic Shark tank.
- Interesting Fact: Jenkinson’s Aquarium acquired this shark from another facility that did not feel she would be a good shark to put on exhibit due to some scratches on her face. We took her in, cared for her, and she has been on exhibit ever since! “Dark Sandbar” can be seen swimming quickly around the exhibit during the feedings like our other sandbar shark, but is not nearly as quick!
