The Tropical Aquarium of Paris is one of the 3 aquariums of the Paris region With l'Aquarium of Paris located in Trocadero and theSea Life Aquarium in the 94. The 3 aquariums are very different, the Tropical Aquarium is the oldest and it has a small side very charming old-fashioned. It is great especially for its crocodile basin. Its entry price is unbeatable.

At the Tropical Aquarium, we do not miss:

  • The basin of Nile crocodiles
  • The 2 albino alligators are white with orange eyes. These are extremely rare specimens because they can not survive in nature
  • The African dwarf crocodiles : they are not the nicest!
  • The beautiful building dating from the colonial exhibition
