The Greater Cleveland Aquarium is preparing to kick off its second annual Shark Weekend on Saturday.

According to the museum, sharks have been around for more than 450 million years, but are in danger of becoming extinct within the next few decades because of over-fishing and finning.

The purpose of the event is to educate and promote conservation. Sharks may have a bad reputation, but are gentle giants.

That being said, we do not suggest trying to befriend one. Watch the video below to hear more about these large creatures.

Visitors can watch a daily feeding at 3:30 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. Kenny learned what sharks' diets consists of, and even fed the sharks their morning snack!
