Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and smells of the tropical rainforest. Jump into a rugged JEEP then uncover a researcher’s camp where you’ll find field tools and discover tropical insect specimens. Then, step in to the Arctic where Northern Lights shimmer across the frozen sky, pose with a towering life-sized polar bear and hop on the back of an authentic dog sled. Dive into the open ocean and find safety in a steel shark cage while a great white shark looms overhead. Next, journey to the wetlands and come face-to-face with 6’ American alligators. See the rough and tough side of the Aquarium and meet reptiles from the desert. Get your hands on the chilling side of nature with some creatures that are cold-blooded and seriously cool in Scales & Tails. Feel* the spiny scales of a bearded dragon, the smooth body of a ball python or touch the slick skin of a young American alligator.
Black-breasted leaf turtles lay clutches of one to two eggs at a time. The eggs take slightly more than two months to hatch. Black-breasted leaf turtles prefer cool temperatures and low light levels. This species is part of the Tennessee Aquarium’s Asian Turtle Breeding Program and has successfully reproduced here.

Whether you have a freshwater or saltwater aquarium, rising temperatures in the summer time can be a cause of concern. Aquariums shouldn’t be allowed to get hotter than 83°F, or dissolved oxygen levels in the water will start to diminish. This triggers a competition between fish and invertebrates for oxygen leading to a very stressful situation, and possibly even death, for your aquarium inhabitants. Detailed below are some tips to help keep your aquarium cool when temperatures rise.So what’s considered good circulation? Circulation can vary from tank to tank depending on how the tank is decorated, the type of inhabitants you have, tank dimensions and more. Generally speaking, fish only tanks should have enough water flow to turn the water over about 10-40 times per hour (tph). Tanks with soft corals should be turned over about 10-30 tph. Mixed reefs (soft and hard corals) and tanks dominated by large polyp stony corals should be turned over 30-50 tph. Small polyp stony coral aquariums should be turned over at least 40-80 tph. These are simply rules of thumb and may not apply to every tank, but by having adequate water flow, the tank should naturally run cooler.Evaporation, when water turns from liquid to gas, helps to cool aquarium water. Evaporation occurs with the addition of energy to the water, such as heat transferred from lighting, pumps, and the room’s air temperature amongst other things. In order for evaporation to occur, the water surface must have exposure to the open air. Plastic hoods and glass canopies hinder the amount of evaporation by limiting air flow and trapping the moisture and heat in the aquarium. Opening the hood or canopy, or removing it all together can help when you’re battling high temperatures. You can also increase air flow and evaporation with a small fan. Fans should be pointed to blow across the surface of the water, and can be a big help in drawing heat away from an intense lighting fixture. How many fans you need depends on the size of the tank, but even one small fan can make a huge difference. Cutting back on how long the lights stay on can also help by reducing the amount of heat energy put into the water.You can basically build an aquarium like box that you can still visually see inside of. The cool thing about this is you can make it more of a square design with less height on the walls and more of a spread layout for the turtle. Because a turtle should have shallower waters but have more surface area and volume of water to swim around in. Whereas fish in the aquarium can swim everywhere up-and-down.
