    Safety Expert Scott Konger discusses how to avoid a shark attack.

    Scott Konger: Well, my name is Scott Konger and I'm the owner of the Tarpon Springs Aquarium. I'm a Marine Biologist and I built the aquarium back in 1990. So I'd been involved with the aquarium from the beginning. How to avoid being bitten by a shark?

    Well, first of all, I've been working here at the aquarium and therefore working with sharks for just about 20 years now. So you get to learn first hand the care which is really important, and sharks are considered difficult to keep in captivity and many other fish are much easier than the sharks. We've had many different types of sharks here. So we've have blacktip shark, nurse sharks, cat sharks, lemon sharks, hammerhead sharks, bonnethead sharks and many different species that I have had opportunity to work with.
