2000 - After two and a half years of construction, the newly equipped aquaria-terraria house and the newly constructed crocodile pavillion were opened. For the first time you can observe the crocodiles under water .Here you will find the largest living coral reef in Austria in an aquarium with a volume of 80,000 liters, a glass tunnel under water where you can see the "amazon habitat". And one of the largest breeding spaces in the world of the highly endangered corned iguana ( a real miniature dinosaur )
On this place from 1752 until the end of the monarchy in 1918 was located the chicken yard equipped with an artificial stream and bordering the alley of the administrative building.

In the aqarium house you will see tropical reefs in huge salt water aquariums with fish in all the colors of the rainbow, as you pass through a tunnel where other big fishesss swim above your head and at your sides...
on one of the photos you can see this fascinating butterfly fish and a black ball of needles, spying on everything with its orange eyes - spooky thing!!!
