  'I think sharks are cute!'
Updated 20 February 2002, 16.37
Victoira with the nurse sharks
Victoria reports on her day moving two sharks from their aquarium to a new home.

"I arrived at Chester's Blue Planet aquarium early so we had time to look around the other fish before we met the sharks.

Then we did a bit of filming, before I got to meet the nurse sharks we were preparing to move.

People think sharks are nasty

The sharks are moved
The nurse shark is my favourite. I like all animals but I particularly like sharks. Most people think they're really hard and nasty but I think they're cute!

These sharks, which I named Tilly and Tara, had to be moved because they'd got too boisterous. They kept on stealing food from the handlers at feeding time.

For sometime their keepers have been looking for a new home for them, and they've finally found a place in Hull called The Deep. It's a new aquarium that's opening in March.

We had to check their temperature

The sharks - which have no teeth - were loaded into containers and moved on a lorry to Hull.

The journey took longer than usual because we had to stop and check their temperature every 40 minutes.

They arrived safely and started swimming around happily.

I'd like to go back and see them soon - my mum's promised we can."

Victoria, 11, Cumbria
