Join us for Mote’s newest family night of fins and fun! It will be a jaw-some time as our professional educators and shark enthusiasts explore the question “What do sharks, stingrays and other marine creatures do when the sun goes down?!” During this interactive program, participants will enjoy a shark-cuterie style spread of snacks while they hear stories about nocturnal species in our local waters, watch some evening feedings, and find out what the sharks are up to after hours in Mote Aquarium. You’ve heard of night owls, now get ready for an evening of elasmobranchs!

Who: All ages
Fee: $40.50 for members, $45 for non-members (ages 3 and under are free)
When: Thursday, March 21, 2024 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
