Two new sandbar sharks are swimming in the BioPark Aquarium’s tank after outgrowing their tanks at Sea Life Aquarium in Tempe, Ariz.

Their travel to Albuquerque took place May 16 and aquarium employees say they are adjusting well. Rich Lerner said the experience is stressful for those who help transport them because they want to make sure the sharks are safe and don’t struggle in their new environment.

BioPark officials say the sandbar sharks are currently threatened due to overfishing. They typically live in the coastal regions around the world.
