Shark Reef - Mandalay Bay
Loading Map
 

Shark Reef Aquarium

3950 S. Las Vegas Blvd., Las Vegas, NV, 89119

Location: Strip

Type: Aquarium / Zoo, Family Friendly

A trip to the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay takes guests on a 14-exhibit journey through a jungle environment into a sunken shipwreck where they will see 2,000 animals, including some of the most dangerous predators in the world. Accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association, the Shark Reef offers a pre-taped tour and has naturalists positioned throughout the exhibit to answer questions.

Some may be surprised to find that the sharks at the Shark Reef -- including a Sandbar shark, a Sandtiger shark and three Sawfish sharks -- are actually not the most dangerous creatures on display there. That title actually goes to the Shark Reef's eight-foot-long Komodo dragon from Indonesia, followed at a close second by the crocodiles.

Another unique feature of the Shark Reef is a touch pool, where guests can pet a variety of fish and rays. The fish are rotated in and out of the touch pool to reduce the amounts of stress generated by the activity.

A staff of 82 operates the Shark Reef on both the animal care and operations side. Each exhibit has a separate filtration system and divers can be found at all times throughout the exhibits scrubbing corals and cleaning algae. One staff member prepares 2,000 meals a day, including a wide variety of foods like chicken, lettuce, nuts, berries, mackerel, jumbo prawn and specialty gels and cakes infused with proteins.
