The Secret World of Sharks and Rays is an experience on now (and for a limited time) at the Vancouver Aquarium that showcases the lifestyles of sharks and their cousins, the majestic rays.
Engage with a beautiful zebra shark and whiprays in the Tropic Zone or take in the colossal models of the basking and thresher sharks in the Pacific Canada Pavilion. Learn about the hunting strategies, survival techniques and incredible adaptations of these fascinating fishes and the issues that threaten them.
There are 370 different living shark species and their cousins come in many shapes and sizes as a result of the incredible adaptations they have undergone in order to survive and thrive in a variety of aquatic environments.
Learn about the sharks that call the waters of British Columbia home, from the very common Pacific spiny dogfish to the endangered basking shark and the rarely seen thresher shark, in our Pacific Canada Pavilion. Then, explore the Tropic Zone and Amazon Gallery to spot a secretive shark called the tasseled wobbegong, a stealthy blue-spotted fantail ray with periscope eyes, and the freshwater stingray that sucks, literally – it sucks up snails to capture and eat them in its native home, Brazil’s Xingu River.
