About the blacktip and whitetip reef sharks
Sharks have lived in our oceans for 450 million years. These animals already made their way through the oceans long before dinosaurs populated the earth. Their brains developed further during this long period: they became more intelligent, their senses more pronounced - especially their sense of smell.
There are over 440 species of sharks. At SEA LIFE Oberhausen you can admire both blacktip reef sharks and whitetip reef sharks!
