PRESENTATION: Shark Secrets education program, by Mote Staff. Florida has nurse sharks, bull sharks, blacktips and sandbar sharks - among others - and you can get closer than you'd like at Mote's 135,000-gallon shark habitat. This exhibit is also home to the world's largest grouper species, the Goliath grouper (yes, he's a cousin to Florida's favorite seafood dish) and some of the world's most sporting fish: tarpon, snook and redfish.
