CHICAGO (AP) - Fans of sharks are invited to learn more about the sea creatures during Shedd Aquarium’s Shark Week.

The Chicago aquarium’s special shark events start Sunday, coinciding with the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week television programming. The Discovery Channel sponsors the aquarium’s Shark Week.

The aquarium is home to 11 species of sharks from the Atlantic, Pacific, Indo-Pacific and Caribbean.

Shedd Aquarium Shark Week events include a Twitter chat on Monday, a weeklong Twitter contest and a $90 behind-the-scenes tour featuring a shark feeding.

The Shedd will choose one shark fan to win two complimentary passes and a behind-the-scenes tour. The winner will be chosen from those who tweet @Shedd_Aquarium with the hashtag UltimateSharkFan.
