The adventure at The Dallas World Aquarium begins at the top of the rainforest exhibit, where exotic birds, such as Cocks-of-the-rock and many species of toucans, can be seen. Lounging around are Two-toed and Three-toed sloths. Endangered animals, such as Orinoco crocodiles, Giant river otters, Antillean manatees and several species of monkeys are part of the many conservation projects. The aquarium portion displays interesting marine life, including Japanese crabs, jellyfish, Leafy, Weedy and Ribbon seadragons. Black-footed and Blue penguins can be seen swimming as guests enjoy the outdoor South Africa exhibit. Sharks, rays and sawfish are only a few of the fish living in the Mundo Maya cenote. Safe from Neotropical eagles, are euphonias, tanagers and hummingbirds. Reptiles and amphibians, both of significance to the Maya culture, can be seen throughout the exhibit.

If it's here, you'll like it. This is a great place to see animals in a natural habitat. From birds to manatees, it's well worth a visit.

There is a lot to see here. It can be crowded if school is out or holidays. I enjoyed the visit but it is a bit pricey.

So glad we went. So much to see. You feel like you're in the middle of the jungle in some parts. We kept thinking we were almost at the end and then there was more, then more. Loved it!

I didn't want to leave! This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. The design of this aquarium was a truly unique thing to behold. Even before entering and purchasing your tickets you are treated to a menagerie of bird and fish in realistic settings. I would have paid three times the ticket price for this!

Great day of fun! We had a great time and I loved taking pictures of the different exhibits. I shared them with my kindergarten class after returning to school. It was a good way for them to make a connection to real life animals. My batteries died while there. So glad the gift shop sells batteries!

My husband and I love this aquarium. We went on a Sunday afternoon and didn't have to wait in any lines. It made for an enjoyable part of our day.

Just went to the aquarium and found that this place is still as awesome as it was the last time we visited. If you are looking for a place to spend the day visiting nice animals this is a great place. People are friendly and the place is super clean.

I had not been here in a few years and did not remember it as being great, but wanted to do something different with the grandkids...was pleasantly surprised by the variety of animals in the aquarium. I do think it best to do a little homework and know what all is going to be there as there are no signs... More
