Fun fact: Did you know that at AquaRio there is a zebra lionfish? With exuberant colors and spines, it is a carnivorous species, poisonous and has spines on its body that can be dangerous to those who come close. There are also 3 Mangona sharks, of the species Carcharias taurus. A curiosity of this species is that females tend to be bigger than males because of their reproduction. Besides the Mangona Shark and the lionfish, AquaRio is also home to the incredible giant spider crab, the largest crustacean in the world! Our system is set up to provide you with quick and efficient bookings.
