What scarier way to carve a pumpkin on Halloween than underwater with some sharks? The National Aquarium has made it a tradition in recent years to have its divers plunge into their Black Tip Reef Shark exhibit to celebrate the holiday. At 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Tuesday, they will be hosting two pumpkin-carving sessions, which will be included with the price of admission. On Monday, aquarium dive safety assistant Taylor Grace carved a sea turtle design in a pumpkin while being circled by Calypso, the National Aquarium's green sea turtle.
