Want to see live sharks during Shark Week? Visit Heal the Bay's Santa Monica Pier Aquarium to check out three species of sharks on exhibit and the marine center's shark nursery. Special activities to honor the Elasmobranchii (learn what that is and how to pronounce it!) are planned all week long. Watch the sharks eat on Tuesday and Friday afternoons or hear a special presentation about these misunderstood animals while they enjoy their Sunday dinner at 3:30 p.m.
