Amazon Reptiles exhibit on the third floor.
A lot of people pass by this exhibit in the on the third floor of the aquarium and if they notice any reptiles it's the two playful, juvenile Amazon yellow spotted river turtles. Children and adults alike admire the many colorful freshwater tropical fish that can be found schooling in this exhibit.
There are Amazon Yellow-Spotted Turtle with Cardinal Tetras, Bleeding Heart Tetras, Pencil fish, Rummy Nosed Tetras, Corydoras Catfish and Red-base Tetras. But lurking deeper in this man-made jungle are a few shier and much larger creatures. If you look closely you will find them.
Can you spot the Anaconda in this picture?
Welcome to the jungle!
