Shark Cam Returning to Discovery Channel's Shark Week
The Shiba Inu puppies made famous by the Puppy Cam have nothing on Discovery Channel’s Shark Cam.
Discovery Channel and the Georgia Aquarium are teaming again to provide a live “fish-eye” view of a variety of sharks living within the world’s largest indoor aquatic habitat, the Ocean Voyager.
Shark Cam, a state-of-the-art high-definition underwater camera located within the Georgia Aquarium’s shark tank, will offer a 360-degree panoramic live-stream of the experience beginning Thursday and continuing to broadcast live through Discovery’s annual Shark Week, which is set for July 31-Aug. 6.
Peek in 24/7 to see the sharks including the world’s largest shark -- the whale shark -- and chat in real time with experts from within the Ocean Voyager.
The Georgia Aquariums also will be hosting special shark-themed events tied in with the promotion.
Shark Week, now in its 24th year, will kick off July 31 and be hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Andy Samberg. Programming includes Great White Invasion, Shark City and Jaws Comes Home, among numerous other specials during the weeklong programming event.
