Although freshwater habitats make up less than one percent of the Earth’s surface area, they support 45% of all fish species. River Gems offers a glimpse of the amazing diversity of plant and animal life that thrive in rivers and along their banks.
What makes it unique
Take pause to marvel at the vibrant colours of the freshwater fish on display here. Pearl gourami and pearl danio shimmer through the water at this first exhibit that you will encounter at River Safari, while the fahaku pufferfish peer out from behind their hiding spots.
