The Aquarium is reopening to the public on July 1. In response to COVID-19, we’re making some essential changes to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
A One-of-a-Kind Habitat
Amazon River Forest portrays an Amazon tributary at the beginning stage of its seasonal flooding into the surrounding forest. During this time, rivers overflow their banks and water rises 10 to 40 vertical feet, creating a unique, seasonal habitat for an incredible diversity of animals. Two smaller exhibits portray identical slices of the river forest: one in the rainy season and the other in the dry season.
