It operates the first shark ray breeding program in the world, and holds one million gallons of water and thousands of aquatic animals from around the world. Featured exhibits include the Amazon Tunnel, which allows visitors to walk along the floor of the Amazon River; Dangerous & Deadly, which showcases some of the world’s most lethal aquatic creatures; Gator Alley, which has one of the most diverse crocodile collections in the country; and Shark Bridge — the world's first suspended rope bridge that allows thrill seekers to walk above more than two dozen sharks, shark rays and other animals.
