The animals and sea life at the Aquarium are nothing short of awe-inspiring. Not just for fish, the Aquarium is also home to many “land lubber” species such as the Golden Lion Tamarin and a baby Two-Toed Sloth. Enjoy the 225,000-gallon tank in shark alley, or take a veterinary tour and learn more about how wild animals are cared for. You can even have a sleepover with the Aquarium’s dolphins!
