The oldest shark fossil ever found is from 450 million years ago. That means that sharks predate trees on our planet by 90 million years and dinosaurs by 190 million years! These ancient predators have evolved to thrive in nearly every type of ocean habitat. See SeaWorld sharks up close and even pet one on our Sharks Up-Close Tour.
A few varieties of sharks are known to speed from great depths, launching themselves out of the water and into the air. This extraordinary leap is called breaching. Different species of sharks might breach for different reasons. Great White Sharks will breach to catch fast-moving prey like seals. Thresher Sharks are thought to breach in an effort to rid their bodies of parasites!
More than 500 species of sharks are alive today. These remarkable predators come in a dazzling array of colors, shapes, and sizes ranging from about 6 inches to nearly 60 feet long! SeaWorld sharks at our Orlando theme park include sand tiger, nurse, sandbar, and zebra sharks, along with our newest residents, two Great Hammerhead sharks named Dutch and Dillon. You'll see them at our Shark Encounter®.
Sharks have many predators, including orcas, Nile crocodiles, sperm whales, sea lions, seals, and other sharks. SeaWorld sharks are protected from predators and fed frequently enough to prevent them from turning on one another.
Hammerhead sharks, recognized by their peculiar, hammer-shaped head, are native to tropical waters worldwide. The IUCN classifies the Great Hammerhead as critically endangered due to their declining populations. You can see two Great Hammerhead sharks up close at SeaWorld Orlando’s Shark Encounter®.
