Some new fins are settling in at Duluth's Great Lakes Aquarium after a 650-mile road trip.

The Dusky Smooth Hound sharks arrived from the Indianapolis Zoo Thursday evening, according to Senior Aquarist Barb Kellerman.

We saw them poking their noses out of the water in a tank in the aquarium basement during a visit Friday morning. Kellerman said they were not behaving normally because they were stressed out by the long trip.

Kellerman said the four male saltwater sharks will be on display in the Shipwrecks Alive! exhibit when it opens next summer.
