National Park Aquarium in Hot Springs, AR
Based on 5 reviews ↓
Visitors will love the exhibits on native fish, tropical fish, and saltwater fish. Children will either love or be totally grossed out by their large collection of lizards, monitors, and even poisonous frogs. One of the citizens here at National Park Aquarium is known as U.T., which simply stands of Ugly Turtle. U.T. is an Alligator Snapping Turtle and weighs in at a whopping 120 pounds. Perhaps to some peoples relief, or others disappointment, there are no snakes on exhibit.
