Four-thousand visitors showed up at the Pine Knoll Shores Aquarium Tuesday as part of "Shark Week."
Shark Week at the aquarium gives visitors a chance to get up close and personal with all the sharks in the aquariums, and to learn more about them.
The recent shark bites along the coast have visitors seeking more information. Shark experts say it's our fascination with the unknown that draws people to the aquarium time after time.
Shark Week, which continues through Saturday, includes activities designed to bring a better understanding of what's in our ocean.
