Visit the Islands of Steel exhibit, modeled after an offshore oil platform, where sharks and sea turtles live among schools of snapper, tarpon, redfish, jacks and grouper. Dare to enter the mysterious world of the Amazon rainforest and experience the exotic, the deadly and the fierce as you encounter poison-dart frogs, freshwater stingrays, and boa constrictors, and spend time in the Living Shores, where you can really get your hands wet! Watch as sea turtles gracefully glide in the waters of Tortuga Cay and see North American river otters play the day away in Otter Creek.
