The Red Sea Habitat represents a place where the land is separating, or rifting. During the Triassic period, Virginia was along a rift zone that led to the creation of the Atlantic Ocean. Rift grabens are types of rock formations created from this process and can be seen in Virginia’s Piedmont region today. There is an 8,000 gallon aquarium filled with delicate live coral, a forty-foot tunnel surrounded by the 100,000 gallon Red Sea Aquarium. Eagle rays with up to six-foot wingspans swim among some of the most beautiful fish in the world.
