Located in the heart of Dallas, The Christopher offers quick and easy access to many of the attractions the city is known for. The Dallas World Aquarium, accredited with both the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums for over 20 years, is less than a mile away. You can check out the virtual Dallas aquarium right from your Dallas apartment!
Often overlooked for flashier, oceanic exhibits, freshwater rivers come with their own brand of excitement. The manatee is the star of The Dallas World Aquarium’s Freshwater Rivers camera. You can watch these aquatic mammals as they drift lazily across your screen. The Dallas World Aquarium has a manatee rescue project in which they have been able to successfully release five of these beautiful animals back into their natural habitat in Peru. Along with the manatees, you may be able to spot one an arapaima, one of the world’s largest freshwater fish, or a red-tailed catfish swimming nearby.
Lionfish, Groupers, and Sharks, Oh My
Also offered by The Dallas World Aquarium for your at-home viewing pleasure is the Cenote Exhibit. Sharks are no stranger to the Texas shore, but lionfish may also be found in Texas reefs and shipwrecks. Their spines are toxic, both to other aquatic species and humans, and they are extremely efficient predators. While groupers may not look like the other predators in this exhibit, don’t let them fool you. They are capable of growing over 850 pounds and will swallow their prey in one gulp.
Once you’ve finished your virtual Dallas aquarium tour, be sure to check out the Dallas Zoo tour afterward. If you have any questions about our prime apartments in Dallas, please feel free to contact us.
