SeaWorld San Diego animal experts and some amazing animals recently visited Solana Vista Elementary School students as part of the park’s commitment to education and wildlife conservation. A SeaWorld educator discussed misconceptions about sharks, compared different shark jaws and introduced the children to Mr. Potato Shark, while illustrating different shark adaptations. And SeaWorld’s Animal Ambassador Team gave a live animal presentation, while dispelling myths about some creepy and not-so-creepy creatures, including a porcupine, 5-foot water monitor, vulture and more.
