Video: Aquarium sets up nativity scene in shark tank


An aquarium in Spain has set up its Christmas nativity scene at the bottom of its shark exhibit.

As eight sharks swam around them, the divers at Madrid Zoo carefully placed the figures of Jesus, Mary and Joseph in position, followed by the three kings.

The figures will remain submerged in the aquarium with six Grey sharks, a Bull shark and a Nurse shark, plus rays, barracuda, other fish and a large Loggerhead turtle until January 7.

The underwater scene has been part of the park's Christmas celebrations since its aquarium opened in 1995.

There are several other nativity scenes set up around the zoo this year — one of them even features pandas!
