World's Biggest Aquarium Opens: Singapore

is home to the biggest aquarium on Earth, reports ANI.

The aquarium, housed within the Marine Life Park at

Singapore's Resorts World Sentosa, contains more than 100,000 marine animals and more than 800 species.

Among them are controversial Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins, which conservationists had tried to get

blocked from being captured for the aquarium.

The aquarium has world's largest viewing area, which is 108

feet long (36 meters) and 25 feet high (8.3 meters).

Visitors can already snorkel with reef fish; swiming

with sharks and dolphins will begin in 2013.
