Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium in Litchfield Park AZ
The latest Aquarium building, scheduled to open in mid-2011, will have about 7000 square feet of public display area featuring marine turtles and a permanent small-clawed otter habitat. The main exhibit will be a 40 x 10 foot, 40,000-gallon Amazon River Monsters display containing 3-4 foot long arowana, even larger arapaima and other South American fresh water giants. These species are so large, they are well known for their ability to jump several feet out of the water to catch prey animals such as birds and primates perched over the water. In addition, the display will have the menacing payara, nicknamed the “vampire fish,” with 6-inch fangs protruding from its lower jaw!
