Finally Visiting The King Croc @ Dubai Mall Aquarium

Lovely View of the World Tallest Structure

Here i am. Back in Dubai Mall. This place is hot. I mean. Hot. Like. Cool. Never get bored of being here as you get the World Tallest Structure here. You get the World Largest Mall here. And now you get the King Croc right inside the mall. I know i have been posting much about the Dubai Mall but how can i not!?

Underwater Tunnel

This was actually my second time here. Dubai Mall Aquarium and Underwater Zoo. Having a huge 10-million litre aquarium tank located in the Dubai Mall. A underwater tunnel, having sharks, rays, sea fishes and etc. Further continuing our journey at the underwater zoo  having amazing creatures inhabit both rivers and oceans. Rainforest. Rocky Shore. Living ocean. Night crawlers. Also housing the King Croc and so called Queen Croc.

King Croc Enclosure
The Huge King Croc

See it to believe it. Weighing 750kg and measuring over 5m in length. Weighing 150kg for the king croc's head alone. 60 pearly white, dense, razor-sharp and the size of your average index finger. 

Upper Floor Viewing. Queen Croc at the bottom.

I was amazed that the entire enclosure was glass. They even have the viewing at the upper floors. Definitely very ambitious. The enclosure seems quite small but the crocs seems very relaxed, active and healthy looking. How i wish i had my DSLR with me right now.

I saw a crocodile (or alligator) once about 1000 feet away near the beach in Charleston South Carolina. I tried to increase that distance away from the croc.

We saw the giant croc statue in Dubai, but did not enter the aquarium. Thanks for the look inside.

Adam wise decision!

YumList there were much more inside. I only highlighted on the king croc side.

The King Croc looks so dangerous! Can it break the viewing glass?

Irvine Chin said...

Mun thats what i was thinking too. i am pretty sure it could break it with a full hit. they have underestimate the king croc.

Nice. I hear they're closing down the Underwater World in Singapore. Nicer than the one in Auckland and in Langkawi.

Irvine Chin said...

ah that's sad to hear. but as long they do provide great care to the sea creatures and animals, i always support them to have it.
