If sharks ran the world a shark petting and aquarium feeding might consist of a shark ordering a large human happy meal, eating it, and then going home to his significant shark lover and getting a back scratch and a foot rub. Thankfully, that scenario will never happen, but you can actually go pet a shark and see an aquarium feeding at the South Florida Science Museum in West Palm Beach. Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 1 p.m. the museums aquarist, Rebecca Shearer, feeds their dozens of saltwater and freshwater tanks that house sharks, alligators, and other marine life from all over the world. If watching an alligator feed on some raw meat or seeing a shark gulp down some calamari isnt quite your thing then the science museum has another surprise. Animal lovers or fans of slippery, awkward-feeling ocean animals can pet a nurse shark. The whole shebang only costs the price of admission: $11.95 for adults, $10.50 for seniors 62+, $8.95 for kids 3 to 12, and, for everyone else, it's free!
