10 homes so lavish they have actual shark tanks inside them

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the waterbed … These homes have their own shark tanks. Okay, so they’re more sand shark than great white, but they fish are still pretty extreme pets. But hey, Shark Week only comes ‘round once a year.

If you want to swim adjacent to (instead of with) the sharks, check out this 10,000-gallon aquarium from Shehan Pools. Nestled near a faux, indoor waterfall, the tank holds sharks, stingray, and a variety of fish.

Tracy Morgan’s shark tank

In a 2012 episode of Animal Planet’s Tanked, Tracy Morgan requested a giant, Jaws-themed shark tank. Is it any wonder that Tracy Jordan’s mantra on 30 Rock was, “Live every week like it’s shark week”?
