A pair of black tip reef sharks are settling in to their new home at Tynemouth’s Blue Reef Aquarium.
The sharks, a male and a female, have spent time acclimatising in the North Tyneside’s attraction’s quarantine area before being released in to their giant tropical ocean display.
They are sharing the coral reef-themed feature with a pair of cow nose rays and more than 400 tropical fish.
“The new sharks look absolutely amazing and are really making themselves at home.
“Black tips really are everyone’s idea of what a ‘real’ shark should look like and they definitely add a new dimension to the visitor experience.

- Belonging to the same family as the great white shark, black tips only reach a maximum size of around 1.6 metres.
- They are active predators and feed on a wide variety of prey including small fish, octopus, squid and crustaceans.
- They have also been known to eat sea snakes and even seabirds.
- They give birth to between two to four live young which can hunt as soon as they are born.

The dog ran away from its owner and became stranded on a rocky outcrop as the tide began to come in.
