Sharks and Rays at Sea Life Loch Lomond

Sharks are found in all the world’s oceans, and Scotland is no exception. Sea Life helps tag and monitor sharks and rays in Scottish waters and also runs a breeding program for tropical and native rays. Their collection of Scottish species includes thornback rays, ungulate rays, and spotted dogfish sharks—but there’s also a tropical tank with blacktip reef sharks and weird-looking bonnethead sharks.
