Shedd Aquarium takes bite out of Shark Week

Shark Week is not an official holiday. Not yet. 

But the annual celebration of things toothy and cartilaginous now gets marked in dozens of countries around the world and even in places far inland, like Chicago.

Indeed, it is pretty much a summer mainstay, whether celebrated ironically (we have Shark Week to blame/credit, it is fair to say, for the “Sharknado” movies) or with passion, expertise and actual sharks, as at the Shedd Aquarium this week.
