Amazonia

Amazonia is a humid equatorial forest located in South America. It accounts for more than half of all the planet’s rainforests. It is also the largest and the richest species in the Earth. Due to the ability of trees to produce oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, densely forested Amazon is called the green lungs of the world.

The Amazon exhibition is located on the ground floor of the Gdynia Aquarium building and presents extremely biodiverse exosystem. There are four large reservoirs called paludars. These are specially prepared aquaterrariums adapted for breeding animals coming from places with high humidity.

The most characteristic inhabitants of this room are green anacondas, i.e. one of the largest snakes in the world, belonging to the family of constrictors.
