The special showing will include sessions such as ‘Crocodile Tears,' ‘On Target,' ‘Space Invaders,' ‘Just Chillin,' ‘SOS' and ‘Watch Out,' each detailing specific aspects on the behavioural patterns of crocodiles. The exhibit will put the spotlight on the need to conserve crocodiles, which are increasingly hunted for their meat and skin to make a range of luxury accessories.
Gordon White, general manager of Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, said: "There is something new for every visitor, and we are committed to continuously enhance the experience through innovative campaigns.
‘Crocodylia' will tell the fascinating story of crocodiles, how they survived and how their existence is being threatened by illicit trade in crocodile hide and artefacts. Whether they fascinate or frighten, they are a key element to our environmental balance. Through the new exhibit, we are offering unique insights on crocodiles, their habitat and their way of life.”
Located in The Dubai Mall, Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo is one of the largest and most diverse aquariums in the world with thousands of aquatic animals, and features the world's largest acrylic viewing panel. – Khaleej Times
