I'm Not Getting In That Tank

I have been swimming with the sharks (yes, the lawyer kind, too) without a cage. I used to volunteer at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach.

Don't get too excited - it wasn't very glamorous.

Mostly I cleaned the tanks and coral displays with a toothbrush.

But, diving in the shark tank was pretty cool, I'd have to admit. When we fed the fish (the sharks had been fed first before we could even get in the tank), you had to keep your hands close by your body.

But now, the Monterrey Bay Aquarium has a Great White on display. Apparently, the only one in captivity.

While the concept of an underwater zoo is great for education and to promote the diving industry, I don't know how they're going to keep that tank clean.

I'm not donning a wetsuit to get in there with those salmon fillets the Great White ate on its first day in the aquarium. How about you? At least you can be a voyeur.
