Additions before holidays at Flint RiverQuarium

December 21, 2006

Albany -- Just in time for families looking for something to do with time off during the holidays, two new additions made their debut at the Flint Riverquarium Thursday.

Baby leopard sharks were added to the stingray tank. The sharks are usually found in the Pacific Ocean and can grow up to 6 feet long.

The aquarium will also continue its live dive shows at the Blue Hole exhibit and run IWERKS theater movies next door during the holidays.

"They're national geographic films. They're not too long so that small children can sit through them and not get too wiggly. They're about 30 to 45 minutes in length, but they're also interesting enough for adults to view as well," said Lydia Lee.

This month is your last chance to catch some of the current shows because they will be phased out starting in January.
