TULSA -- The Oklahoma Aquarium will celebrate Shark Week 2018 by allowing a member of the public to dive with bull sharks at the aquarium. 

The Oklahoma Aquarium is the home to the world's largest collection of bull sharks, and the tank has never been opened to an outside diver, officials said.

The selected diver will be outfitted with a 45-pound, $6,000 chainmail suit and a GoPro. He or she will swim alongside two scuba-certified aquarium staff.
