It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Reef HQ Aquarium's Tawny Nurse Shark, affectionately known as 'Cuddles'. On Sunday 16 July, Cuddles passed away from natural causes at 21-22 years of age. Over the past 21 years, Cuddles has delighted countless guests and has been an Ambassador for all sharks worldwide and viewed by over 2.5 million visitors since his arrival in 1996.
