    About this experience 

    Take yourself on a desert trail, leading through authentic desert landscapes from all over the world. 

    Explore, first hand, the amazing flora and fauna that call these challenging and barren environments home and gain an understanding of how they survive and adapt to their harsh surroundings. Dip your fingers into the aquarium, where you'll be gently nibbled on by Garra rufa fish, and look out for some of the world's most colorful newts. You'll find Texas' black-tailed rattlesnakes, measuring a giant 1.3 meters, and search for naked mole rats in the 70-meter-long maze of glass tubes. 

    Cacti and plenty of other stunning succulents line the trails of the Desert House. Keep an eye out for numerous examples of unusual plant life that can be found in these hostile, dry environments.
