Found in the historic West End District, the Dallas World Aquarium aids conservation by housing endangered or threatened animals. Visitors enjoy a unique journey around the world, from Costa Rica to South Africa. Today, you can explore from our Las Colinas apartments through animal cams and more. Here is some of what you can discover when you explore the Dallas World Aquarium online:
Found in the River exhibit, the manatees are fun to watch. Related to elephants, these graceful animals move slowly through rivers and coastal areas. Manatees feast on algae, mangrove leaves, and seagrass, and eat ten percent of their body weight in plant mass daily. There are three manatee species. In the United States, the West Indian manatee are considered endangered.
As you watch the shark cam, one of the species you may spot is the longnose sawshark. These sharks have slightly flattened bodies and are recognized by their long, flat snout. Longnose sharks call southern Australia home and swim through the water in search of fish and benthic invertebrates.
Photo Ark founder Joel Sartore partnered with the Dallas World Aquarium and other zoological and wildlife sanctuaries to document every species. To date, Joel has captured over 10,500 animals. He started Photo Ark in his hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska, and since 2006, he has traveled to 50 countries on a journey to fulfill his mission. As you explore the Ark, you'll learn about yellow-billed magpies, Schmidt's red-tailed guenons, grivet monkeys, and more.
After you virtually explore the Dallas World Aquarium, order some barbecue from a nearby restaurant. You can enjoy ribs, brisket, and other tasty dishes.
