Ripley’s Aquarium – Photo Tour

Here is a 23 photo tour of the Ripley’s Aquarium in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We’ve included brief descriptions of some of the photos as well.

Arapaima Gigas checking out two much smaller Oscars in the South American Amazon Display. You can see the Oscars trying to get the heck out of there.


The same amazon themed tank as above, showing a huge Pacu with adult Oscars for a size comparison.

Big Shark on the prowl.

Saltwater rays in the shallow pool.

Oh, it’s you again Mr. Penguin.

Huge curved reef tank.

You can see the sun piercing through this massive African Cichlid display.

Saltwater Monster Pool

This is what I call filtration.

Big ol’ Iguanas.
