Interactive Tortoise Animal Encounters until 5PM


At this interactive exhibit, guests can get up close and personal with these gentle African tortoises. Recently introduced in 2013, this exhibit features rescued tortoises from Noah’s Lost Ark (NLA), an animal sanctuary located in Ohio. We are honored to have some of NLA’s rescued tortoises here at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium, and encourage our guests to interact with them by touching their shells. Similar to the feeling we have when someone touches our fingernails, these tortoises love this friendly form of communication.
