Our zebra shark, Zeke, is turning four-years-old today (and on the 4th of November, no less)!
Zeke and our second zebra shark, Zoe, have a very close relationship. They can often be seen hanging out together in the sandy, flat areas of Blacktip Reef!
As juveniles, zebra sharks have dark bodies with yellowish stripes. As they mature, their patterning changes to small dark spots. Zeke is starting to lose his stripes – soon, he’ll be covered in spots, like Zoe!
In addition to their distinctive spots, our zebra sharks can be easily recognized by their impressively long tails!
Couldn’t make it down to wish Zeke a Happy Birthday in person today? Catch him on our Shark Cam!
