Dallas World Aquarium
In the West End Historic District, this aquarium in a reworked warehouse from 1924 has more than just fish. Mundo Maya keeps ocelots, American flamingos, and various colorful passerine birds and owls to go with its vibrant angelfish and axolotls. The upper floor is taken over to reproduce the Orinoco Rainforest, inhabited by sloths, giant river otters, and primates like pygmy marmosets and red howler monkeys dwarf caimans.
The Dallas Zoo would be a worthwhile family outing even without its greatest attraction. But the Giants of the Savanna habitat is not something you’ll come across very often. This $32.5-million habitat, unveiled in 2011, has reticulated giraffes, zebras, impala, ostriches, and guinea fowl sharing the same ample space.
