The Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay is a public aquarium with one of the largest tanks in North America. Its main tank is 1,300,000 US gallons. This aquarium is home to over 2,000 animals, including a sawfish, giant rays, endangered green sea turtles, piranhas, jellyfish, and a rare golden crocodile.
How cool is this Golden Crocodile at the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas? A golden crocodile is a hybrid of the Saltwater and a Siamese Crocodile. They have less pigment than other crocodiles. Golden crocodiles can reach up to 20 feet in length and weigh close to one ton.
There is one touch pool filled with Sting Rays. Kids always enjoy getting to pet stuff, especially funny looking things like stingrays. They also have horseshoe crabs that you can touch.
Jellyfish, always a hit with the kids. Jellyfish are not actually fish, but rather invertebrates (an animal without a backbone). These moon jellies are fed brine shrimp (also known as sea monkeys) twice each day.
