Shark Reef Las Vegas
The Mandalay Bay Shark Reef is one of the most exquisite aquariums that you can visit within a hotel. Housing 100 different species, including five of the remaining twelve golden saltwater crocodiles, this is one of the most fascinating things to do in Vegas.
The shark reef Las Vegas covers 90,000 square feet. The 40 million dollar aquarium nearly 2 million gallons of water. Creatures not usually suitable for home aquariums, such as the red-tailed catfish, the Arapaima Gigas and a water monitor, thrive in the sunken temple scene, allowing guests of the reef to see animals they would normally never be able to see.
