NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — What name do you think fits a sandbar shark? Finley? Or how about Sandy? Maybe Chessie?
The Virginia Living Museum (VLM) needs your help choosing one of those three names for a sandbar shark, in celebration of their new “Shark Zone” exhibit opening later this month.
You can vote one time per day for your favorite name, now through May 10. There are three ways to vote:
- Through the VLM’s website
- In the VLM’s lobby on a paper ballot (located at 524 J. Clyde Morris Boulevard)
The winning name will be announced at the opening of “Shark Zone” on May 11. There will be a VLM member preview of the exhibit from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. before it opens to the public at 11 a.m.
“Shark Zone” will feature a gallery of shark photos by National Geographic Photographer Brian Skerry, a saltwater tank where you can touch live cat sharks and skates, a fossil beach to dig for shark teeth and more!
