SHARK REEF AQUARIUM

Housing more than 2,000 animals including sharks, exotic fresh and saltwater fish, a massive sea turtle and much more. Shark Reef offers the aquatic experience of a lifetime. The ocean is probably the last thing people think of when they visit the dry desert of Las Vegas, but the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay changes that.

Shark Reef is reminiscent of an ancient temple slowly sinking into the ocean. The tunnel, which houses five species of sharks and the aquarium’s largest animals, is designed to look like a sunken shipwreck. Here, visitors can witness a scuba diver’s view of these mesmerizing creatures, including nurse sharks and tiger-striped sharks measuring up to nine feet long, and two tiger sharks that measure more than six feet in length.

When divers swim in to clean these tanks, they wear a stainless steel mesh, similar to what knights wore long ago. The metal helps keep the animals away so the humans don’t look like food.

In addition to the shark tunnel, guests can experience exhibits featuring crocodiles, freshwater fish, piranhas and much more.

Since many of us aren’t planning to pet a piranha anytime soon, visitors can enjoy getting a “hands-on” experience with various stingrays, eels and crabs at the touch pool.

Also at the Shark Reef is an eight-foot-long Komodo dragon, the largest species in the lizard family. This particular Komodo lives within an environment similar to its habitat, complete with sand, boulders and a pool.

For those who want an in-depth, personal enrichment about the animals, audio wands are available in Spanish, English and Japanese. In addition, Shark Reef’s naturalists are available to answer any questions visitors may have.

Located at the end of the exhibit, Shark Reef’s gift shop features an assortment of figurines, picture frames, trinkets and souvenir photos for those who took one right before the tour.

Sharks: Blacktip reef sharks, whitetip reef sharks, bonnethead sharks, nurse sharks, sand tiger sharks, sandbar sharks, zebra sharks, white spotted bamboo sharks, port jackson sharks and lemon sharks

Tropical and Fresh Water Fish: Several species of angelfish, puffer fish and tang fish, and venomous tropical fish including lionfish and foxface

Reptiles: Golden crocodiles, green sea turtles and ravenous water monitors

Eels, Marine Invertebrates, Rays: Moray eels, southern stingrays and hundreds of moon jellyfish
