The main displays were arranged in three
groups, each concentrated in a separate
arm of the swirling structure. Northern
Lakes and Seas had a well-designed touch
tank with an attendant to introduce guests,
young and old, to various sea creatures that
included starfish, sea cucumbers, and crabs.
It had 16 displays that included two large
exhibits, one of which housed a pair of
northern sea otters, Mojoe and Agnes, who
were fed and trained three times a day, each
a very popular 45-minute demonstration.
The others exhibits, small to medium
in size, largely concentrated on aquatic
habitats, both marine and freshwater, found
in and around Denmark. Tropical Lakes and
Rivers, with eight medium-sized exhibits
and 13 smaller aquariums, covered habitats
from South America, Africa, and Asia. Four
tanks in the South American exhibit formed
part of the impressive Rain Forest display
with the forested overhead walkways and
free-flying birds that included scarlet-headed
blackbirds and violet turacos, as well as
