ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A unique exhibit is back open at the BioPark Aquarium.

After five months of renovations, the shark and ray touch pool is up and running again.

The touch pool has whitespotted bamboo and epaulette sharks, bluespotted and Atlantic rays and more. The aquarium says the old touch pool was a big hit with the guests and so far the new one has been a hit as well.

The renovation cost about $12,000.
