Aquarium investigates sandbar shark's death
The shark was between 7 and 10 years old and had been at the aquarium for 20 months, aquarium spokeswoman Lisa Popyk said Sunday. It had been captured off the coast of Florida.
The aquarium experienced a number of animal deaths last year, including two penguins in September, an octopus in July and a rare albino leopard shark in March.
The sandbar shark is a common species and typically grows to about 8 feet.
