White shark held in captivity for 137 days has been released back into wild.
"Officials said the decision to release the shark came after scientists assessed its size and behavior. If the shark stayed any longer, they said, it could have been too cumbersome and too dangerous to move."
The Monterey Bay Aquarium is the only place in the world where white sharks have been held in captivity successfully for more than 16 days. Because white sharks can usually not be properly taken care of for extended periods of times, they are practically never kept in aquariums to be put on display.
