The Dallas World Aquarium
1801 N Griffin Street, Dallas, TX 75202
The Dallas World Aquarium is a for-profit aquarium and zoo located in the West End Historic District of downtown Dallas. The upper level is an artificial reproduction of the Orinoco Rainforest. The rainforest is an aviary, with birds such as scarlet ibis and toucans flying freely. While winding their way through the rainforest, visitors see the only public display of three-toed sloths and Antillean manatees in the United States, plus animals such as electric eels, caecilians, tamarins, poison dart frogs, Orinoco crocodiles, and vampire bats. The lower level houses aquaria featuring fish, sea anemones, coral, jellyfish, and other sea animals from around the world.
