Fort Worth Zoo opens Stingray Cove interactive exhibit

🕐 1 min read

What has a tail, and wings, but swims underwater? The newest residents at the Fort Worth Zoo.

The Zoo announced March 26 the grand opening of Stingray Cove, an all-new interactive exhibit where guests can get up close to and touch a variety of stingrays and small sharks as they swim through the shallow saltwater pool. Guests can also feed the rays.

The new pool is populated by two stingray species – cownose rays and southern stingrays – and three species of shark – the bonnethead shark, the brown-banded bamboo shark and the white-spotted bamboo shark.

“We gave our spring break guests a sneak peek at the exhibit, and the overwhelming response was great excitement,” said Michael Fouraker, Fort Worth Zoo executive director. “These kinds of encounters help foster a connection to animals and build awareness of how we can care for them in the wild.”

The covered exhibit is built on one of the Zoo’s event sites and is accessible to the public during regular Zoo hours. Admission is $5 ($4 for Zoo members) and covers all day entry, allowing guests to come and go throughout their same-day stay.
