The Florida Aquarium is a medium sized aquarium located in the Channel District of Tampa Florida. This aquarium is focused on showing native wildlife of Florida but does have a large collection of animals from other parts of the world. My favorite part is the large bio dome area which starts with displays on freshwater springs and ends with exhibits on bays and estuaries. In the bio dome area are free flight birds and open exhibits. Upstairs is a section on Madagascar with in the bio dome. There is also a large tank with sharks and other fish of Florida's reefs. Outside they also have a water play area for kids. Overall the aquarium shows off Florida's wildlife and other parts of the worlds oceans very well.
