MONTEREY, Calif. (AP) - A great white shark that was caught in the waters off Southern California is now on display at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Aquarium officials say the four-foot, seven-inch male shark was transferred from Malibu to Monterey and placed in the aquarium's Open Sea exhibit on Wednesday night. The aquarium hopes to keep it on display for the next several months. It is the sixth time Monterey Bay has exhibited a young great white shark. All the previous sharks have been returned to the wild.
Aquarium officials say they caught this shark in the waters near Marina del Rey on Aug. 18. Before his transfer, he was kept in a holding pen in Malibu, where he was observed swimming comfortably and eating.
