The Ocean Voyager exhibit was specially designed to house whale sharks, the largest fish species in the world. It is 26 feet high, 63 feet wide and weighs 120 tons.
Schools of jacks, squadrons of small and large stingrays, enormous grouper and sharks all ply the waters of this ocean habitat containing more than six million gallons of saltwater. When standing in front of the window, it feels as though you are just inches away from the animals, but in fact, the acrylic of the viewing window is two feet thick.
Algae feed and live off of coral and coral are able to manifest food from algae through photosynthesis.
Therefore, the reason that coral reefs reside in shallow warm waters is because they need to be close to the sun in order to sustain food through photosynthesis.
The king penguins — the second largest of all of the penguin species — are the ones with the distinctive yellow patches on the sides of their heads.
Just 19 walrus live among seven zoos and aquariums in the United States.
The Indianapolis Zoo is fortunate to have not just one but two! She shares her exhibit with Pakak, a male Pacific walrus calf who was found stranded off the coast of Northern Alaska in 2012.
Watch this video of Pakak and Aurora interacting for the first time. Transport yourself to the continent of Asia without ever leaving your computer chair!
