A very special event occurred at the I&J Predator Exhibit on Sunday, 12 December when Frikkie van der Merwe proposed to Anneke Schoeman during feeding time – in full view of ragged-tooth sharks and Aquarium visitors!
After feeding the sharks, our divers unfurled a giant banner inside the I&J Predator Exhibit and revealed these words: “Anneke Schoeman, sal jy met my trou?” (“Anneke Schoeman, will you marry me?”)
Anneke was visibly surprised and, when she turned around, saw that Frikkie had gone down on one knee, engagement ring in hand.
Visitors present at the proposal burst out into a spontaneous applause.
Congratulations to the newly betrothed pair! May you have many happy years together. Here are some pictures from the day.
