Sharks at Ripley Aquarium

In front of you in the online camera there is the largest gallery of the Ripley’s Aquarium “Dangerous Lagoon”, where several species of sharks live. As you can see in the live broadcast, the gallery is an underwater tunnel, moving through which visitors can get acquainted with the blue-gray tiger shark, the northern spiky tail, the green sawfly, green sea turtles and other marine life inhabitants.

The Canadian Ripley’s Aquarium with the live stream on the Baltic Live Cam website, was opened in 2013. The area of ​​the aquarium is 41 thousand square meters. The length of the tunnel is 97 meters. In total, more than 16,000 marine and freshwater animals live in aquarium tanks.

Besides the Dangerous Lagoon, which the webcam is aimed at, Ripley’s aquarium has territory similar to the Canadian Great Lakes. The Indian Ocean area is also open.

It is interesting to see the Ray Bay Aquarium with electric ramps, which also has an online camera on the Baltic Live Cam website. The Planet Jellies Tunnel is home for jellyfish.

Except inspecting the tanks, the Canadian Ripley Aquarium, where the live feed comes from, hosts entertaining shows, educational events for children and adults, as well as interactive programs.

In the webcam presented on this page of the Baltic Live Cam website, you can also see an ordinary sand shark (gray sand shark). This is a large-sized fish that lives in the warm waters of a subtropical climate. The color of a formidable predator is light brown, often with dark reddish or brown dots. They feed small fish, squid and stingrays.

Based on its name, sand sharks can mainly be found closer to the bottom, although sometimes they appear on the surface.

The front teeth of the gray sand predators shown in the online live camera have wide pointed teeth. The maximum recorded length of females is 320 cm, and of males is 301 cm, the usual length is 250 cm. The body weight sometimes reaches 159 kg or even 300 kg.

In addition to sand sharks, not big reef sharks also fall into the lens of the webcam. They live in the warm waters of the Indo-Pacific region among coral reefs. This shark is potentially dangerous to humans, and is also the subject of commercial fishing.

The adult reef shark, which you see in the online webcam, reaches 2.5 meters with an average length of 1.5 m. The maximum weight can be up to 27 kg.

The dark gray torso on the back often has dark spots. The belly is light. The shark lives mainly in clear water.

The main difference between reef sharks is the ability to lie motionless for a long time at the bottom.

This species of shark is hunting in the dark. The menu consists of fish, octopus, crabs.

The reef shark shown online has a good sense of smell. Also, these cunning predators easily pick up electrical, acoustic and olfactory signals from the prey.

In Madagascar, Sri Lanka and India, the reef shark, excellently shown on the webcam, is a commercial target.

Recently, the number of reef sharks has been declining due to uncontrolled capture. Thanks to natural aquariums like the Canadian Ripley’s Aquarium, where the online camera is located, this species of sharks are still preserved.
