Madrid's Zoo Aquarium embraced the holiday spirit by installing a nativity scene at the bottom of a shark tank on Tuesday, a tradition which has turned into an annual crowd-pulling event for the aquarium.
"Like every Christmas, we just installed the Nativity Scene in the shark pool, which is a tradition we have been performing since the opening of the aquarium in 1995," explained marine biologist Pablo Montoto, who dives every year into the shark tank.
According to Montoto, despite the sharks being "perfectly acclimated" to having divers swimming amongst them, there is always a safety protocol in place.
Grey reef sharks, blacktip reef sharks, a female sand tiger shark, a nurse shark, two guitarfish and three rajiformes are a few of the members of this aquatic family.
Madrid's Zoo Aquarium hosts as many as 330 aquatic species and has been celebrating the holiday season with an aquatic nativity scene ever since it's big opening in 1995. The nativity scene will be on display until January 7.
