About this Tour
The Aquarium of São Paulo is an oceanarium located in the Ipiranga district, southeast of the city of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.
Opened on July 6, 2006 (12 years), the complex underwent a renovation, having 2,000 m² formerly, but now owning 8,000 m² of constructed area. It is one of the largests oceanarium in South America, with more than 1 million liters of seawater.
The aquarium also houses a saltwater aquarium, covered in transparent acrylic windows, which allow a complete view of the sharks.
The aquarium also has an area dedicated to animals of oceania, with kangaroos, koalas and equidines. There are also small animals from Africa such as meerkats and lemurs.
The site is divided by sectors dedicated to specific environments. Brazilian forests and freshwater animals are the first to be presented. There, the main inhabitants are iguanas, lizards, snakes, turtles, salamanders and alligators (it even has an albino). Totens bring information about each species.
A sunken submarine, with all the scenery necessary for the visitor to really feel in one, is home to (many!) Sharks of different species and rays. Glass in the ceiling, where you can see the animals swimming, in addition to the larger tank, allow you, with luck, to accompany the snack of the animals with the handlers.
