Shark Reef aquarium in Las Vegas is home to more than 2,000 animals. Thisincludes sawfish, endangered green turtles, the sharp teeth of the piranha and the jellyfish and a golden crocodile which is quite rare. If the primary attractions below are too exciting, you can amble around the aquarium and marvel at the amount of water and all the creatures that live there.
Shark Reef Aquarium is introducing their latest exhibit – the world premiere of Polar Journey, An Interactive Adventure. It might only be open for a limited time, so checking before arrival is advisable.
It is not very often you get fish in the middle of Las Vegas so you might as well take advantage and help with the feeding of them. There are 3 distinct feeding that is done, and although not as dangerous as the others, the Stingray feed is extra special as you get to venture inside the aquarium before the doors are open to the public.
Although the feeding time is only an hour, you get the early entry and a guided tour through the exhibits by one of the in-house experts. Then you have the exclusive chance to feed the rays and the horseshoe crabs. You also get admission to the Shark Reef Aquarium.
The second is the shark feeding, and if you have ever wondered how they eat, this will show you first hand. Our expert Aquarists will teach you how and what the sharks eat. How it’s prepared, and how they feed them. If that was notenough, you could help to feed a few of the Zebra sharks.
Last of not least is the sea turtles. They have to be fed same as all the others. This is personal and exclusive, and you get to go above the 1.3 million gallon tank covering the old shipwreck. From here you get to feed the 300-poundsea turtles that come up for their lunch.
