  • Distinguishing Characteristics: “Light Nurse” is lighter in color than the other nurse sharks in our Atlantic Shark tank and is larger than “Junior”.
  • Interesting Fact: “Light Nurse” and “Dark Nurse” have been together at Jenkinson’s Aquarium since April 2000. “Light Nurse” will often come up and take food from the fish in the exhibit during their feeding time, but is usually the last shark to come up during her feeding time.
