    Now you can decide If you want to Go Outside and View the Next Enclosures from above or staying inside and View the Enclosures through under water Viewing Windows, it is the

    Rocky Shores

    The First Enclosure you will see If you are staying inside is the underwater Viewing Window for an Aviary. The Next underwater Viewing Window is for an midsized Enclosure. The Last Enclosure of the Shores is the largest Enclosure of the Three. If you are going Outside you See First the large Enclosure from a Boardwalk. You can see that there is a large Beach area with many huge rocks and there is also a Second smaller Pool with an heated rock Island in the Centre. The Next Enclosure is also Viewed from above, there is also an Beach area in the Enclosure. Next you are Entering the Aviary, you can View the birds from above and have a good View of the beach area. You then have to Walk Back to the Oceanarium to See the other Zoo animals.

    Do correct me if I am wrong but @German Zoo World given by the words on the last sentence of the post, I’m guessing in some way that the Oceanarium will have at least one kind of large shark species (Whale Sharks?) within the building or am I just plain mistaken.
