    Seems purely sadistic keeping great white with tiger nad bull shark among all the other in such small tank. And presumably knowing that the great white still failed to be introduced into captivity. If they were looking forward to succed why didn’t the provide a separate, spacious tank? Most Great whites are social, but solitary. Looks like they hoped to make some good money on the exhibition. Shame the animal got wasted…
