Loveland Living Planet Aquarium is an AZA (Associaton of Zoos and Aquariums) Accredited, world-class attraction, featuring five unique ecosystems from South America to the Antarctic. The Aquarium is home to more than 4,000 animals, from penguins to sloths, sharks to leopards, otters to porcupines, and much more. This unique aquarium is the ninth-largest in the nation and is a must-see during your trip to Utah.
Loveland Living Planet Aquarium features a large shark habitat with a 40-foot walk-through tunnel. Guests are amazed to see five different species of sharks, two sea turtles, stingrays, and colorful fish swim all around them. Another popular habitat to explore is the Gentoo Penguin Research Station, where more than 20 penguins swim and waddle around. LLPA features not only sea life but all animals that makeup Earth’s diverse ecosystems, including our two beautiful Clouded leopards in the Expedition: Asia hall and the sloths in the Journey to South America hall.
