Dallas World Aquarium

Dallas World Aquarium

No, I haven’t been scuba diving or snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef or any other underwater marvel; nor have I been traipsing around the jungles of Africa or any location where wild creatures will eat or bite you. I have, however, spent several enjoyable and educational hours at the fabulous Dallas World Aquarium. This venue is located in an old warehouse in the shadows of downtown Dallas skyscrapers very near the Texas Book Depository and the Historic West End District. The aquarium is a for profit facility that opened in 1992. The Dallas World Aquarium is an aquarium and zoo dedicated to aiding conservation and housing many animals that are threatened or endangered. The upper level is a reproduction of a rainforest and the lower level consists of several aquariums containing specimens from around the world.

The photographs in this blog represent only a sampling of the Dallas World Aquarium’s residents.
