(KMOV) -- Sharks and stingrays are coming back to the St. Louis Zoo.

The "Stingrays at Caribbean Cove featuring sharks" exhibit, opening on April 20, will give visitors a chance to interact with three species of sharks, two species of stingrays and horseshoe crabs.

The ocean creatures will be housed together in a 20-inch deep, 17,000-gallon saltwater pool.
 
Zoo officials said these species of stingrays and sharks pose no threat to humans, and visitors are encouraged to "dip their hands into the water and allow the animals to touch them."
 
Admission to the exhibit will be $3 for the general public, and $1.50 for Zoo Friends members.
