JENKS, OK -- There are four new sharks on display at the Oklahoma Aquarium.   The aquarium is holding three of them for the Tulsa Zoo and one for Wonders of Wildlife in Springfield, Missouri, while their tanks there are under construction.       

They have been in tanks behind the scenes, but on Wednesday workers had the job of moving the 200 pound nurse sharks to an aquarium where the public can see them.  That means there are now 23 sharks in the main tank at the Aquarium.

The sharks may stay there for up to a year, until work on their permanent homes is finished.
