Queensland’s very own King Croc is just one of the many stars on show at the Dubai Aquarium. The aquarium recently launched a number of animal encounter sessions including ray feeding, otter meet and greet experience, back of house tour, crocs tour and bird feeding.

If you’re a thrill seeker the King Croc encounter allows you to get up close and see the massive 750kg predator live in action. If not, how about hand feeding some rays, visitors can get into the water and feed up to 50 as they splash around. Another alternative is a meet and great with a small furry friend that includes a special educational presentation to learn more about training and otter behaviour.

These amazing encounters have been years in the making and are a fantastic educational experience.
