Kansas City Zoo's newest attraction has opened to the public. The PGAV designed Stingray Bay is a state-of-the-art interactive exhibit allowing guests to get hands on with rays and sharks. The touch tank contains 20,000 gallons of water and built at a height that provides access to everyone. The center of the pool is deeper, so animals that choose not to be touched have a place to rest.
Guests have the opportunity to dip their hands into a shallow pool and discover the unique texture and movement of two species of stingrays – 20 cownose rays and eight southern stingrays. In addition to stingrays, the tank is also home to a dozen of the smallest species of sharks, whitespotted bamboo sharks.
Congratulations to the Kansas City Zoo, and the Jackson and Clay County residents.
