At Shark Expo, rare hammerhead sharks can also be admired, very difficult to find in aquariums, an enormous exemplar of the lemon shark, the extraordinary elegance of the zebra shark (that enchants everyone with its beauty when it swims), two exemplars of nurse sharks, Oscar and Matilda, and the special carpet and bamboo sharks. The smallest shark measures 10 cm. The largest is Rocco the Bull Shark which measures 3 meters. Visitors are welcomed by the enormous jaw of a white shark; inside there are display cases with museum displays of sharks and historical finds. Along the way, original fossil jaws and teeth are seen, ancient and modern anti-shark devices, collectors’ pieces from the world over, comic strips, previously unseen film clips, and much more. There are also a room for informative videos and one on shark attacks of people.
