The Bay of the Rays

Year opened: 2014

A generous construction project, this exhibit became a home of Oman cownose rays – a marine ray species. In many respects, it is a unique display, unexampled in the Central European region since this species is bound to seawater - a setting that is very complex in terms of water preparation and maintenance technology. Visitors can watch and even feed the rays as they range in a large pool. In addition to extending over 70 square metres and the average water depth being about a metre, the volume of the entire aquatic system will be exceeeding 100,000 litres. From a different aspect, the concept of the building will allow the visitor a face-to-face contact with these members of cartilaginous fish.
