King Croc to define Underwater Zoo as must-visit destination


June 17, 2014 | By RetailME Bureau

The Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo added to its collection by introducing a saltwater crocodile and his female companion. The couple, says CEO of Emaar Retail Maitha Al Dossari, will further define Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo as the must-visit destination in the city.

Flown in from Koorana Crocodile Farm in Queensland, Australia, 40-year-old King Croc and his companion are kept in an enclosure that mimics the crocodile’s natural habitat.

“These large aquatic reptiles have a history of over 60 million years surviving through different environments and terrains. Through our exhibit, we are offering the exciting opportunity to our visitors to learn more about crocodiles and their role in the ecosystem. This marks the first time a crocodile of this size finds his home with in a mall in a major city,” says Al Dossari.

Emaar Retail has developed and manages the business operations for the aquatic zoo, among other entertainment components at The Dubai Mall.

Al Dossari adds: “We are confident that King Croc will further define Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo as the must-visit destination in the city, and will serve as a wonderful new experience for children and adults alike.”

Experts claim that the 40-year-young King Croc has the potential to grow in size over the next 50 years of his expected lifespan.

“It (introduction of King Croc) underlines our commitment to enhance our offering on a regular basis and captivate our audiences with exceptional attractions that can seldom be discovered in a mall environment,” says Al Dossari.
