The Kelly Tarlton aquarium in Auckland is dedicated to the local marine life, but also to that of Antarctica.
The marine animals in the aquarium include penguins, sharks, rays and tropical fish.
Visitors are invited to a special meal everyday at the aquarium - feeding the fish! The more adventurous can even swim with the sharks. Equipped with just a snorkelling mask or diving equipment (but protected by a cage), visitors are literally nose to nose with the largest sea predators!
