The adventure at The Dallas World Aquarium begins at the top of the rainforest exhibit, where exotic birds, such as Cocks-of-the-rock and many species of toucans, can be seen. Lounging around are Two-toed and Three-toed sloths. Endangered animals, such as Orinoco crocodiles, Giant river otters, Antillean manatees and several species of monkeys are part of the many conservation projects. The aquarium portion displays interesting marine life, including Japanese crabs, jellyfish, Leafy, Weedy and Ribbon seadragons. Black-footed and Blue penguins can be seen swimming as guests enjoy the outdoor South Africa exhibit. Sharks, rays and sawfish are only a few of the fish living in the Mundo Maya cenote. Safe from Neotropical eagles, are euphonias, tanagers and hummingbirds. Reptiles and amphibians, both of significance to the Maya culture, can be seen throughout the exhibit.

We recently took our young grandsons - ages five and six to the Aquarium. It is large enough and diverse enough to keep them totally interested! As adults we also had a fun time. The gift shop was a big hit also!

I went as a chaperone with 120 5th graders. They had a very good time. I was with a quick moving group of boys and we saw everything in 1 hour.

Aquarium does not even begin to cover all that you will see! Birds, plants, animals...and oh yeah fish! You can easily spend hours here. A bit confusing on the layout but so much to see!

This was a very enjoyable hour strolling around, and despite some enclosures being closed, there was still more than enough to be worth the visit. Although it was an Aquarium, it had ample wild life to almost be considered a Zoo. The black Jaguar was...More

I believe you can but suggest you avoid crowded weekend visits. Narrow walkways and strollers could be uncomfortable.
