St. Louis, MO (KSDK) -- The St. Louis Zoo is celebrating Shark Week from August 11-17.
NewsChannel 5 got to watch the keeper showcase 'target training' with the sharks while we were checking out a few shark week events.
'Target training' is when the keeper stands in the pool and points the target (a pole) and the sharks come to it. If they come to the pole, they are rewarded with food.
Look through the photos above to see what we saw!
The zoo currently has five sharks - mostly nurse and bamboo sharks.
For a complete list of fun Shark Week events, go to the zoo's website.
Here's a tip: If you dress like a shark this week, you get free admission to Caribbean Cove!
