MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A new shark exhibit is coming to Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach in May.

The exhibit will feature blacktip and whitetip sharks, and will be located where the Caribbean lobster exhibit currently resides, representatives with the aquarium said. Most of this exhibit will be taken out to make way for the new sharks, but they are keeping some of the fish and lobsters.

Some of the husbandry staff went to pick up one of the last sharks for the exhibit on Friday. The sharks are currently in quarantine at a separate Ripley’s Aquarium building, where they will be for 45 days.
