The Sub-Antarctic Exhibit features Langkawi Underwater World’s biggest draw, the Rockhopper Penguins. They became known for hopping from rock to rock, which is how they received their name. The smallest of the crested penguins, these adorable creatures are also referred to as "Rockies."
The Sunken Ship Exhibit or Hexagonal Tank is an enormous 70,000-liter tank that contains numerous aquatic species. The stars of this exhibit, however, are the deadly and dangerous black-tip shark and the white-tip shark which tread the waters among the other inhabitants of this tank.
One of the living wonders of the fragile ecosystem of the ocean is this underwater coral garden, which is a riot of lovely colors. Visitors can get a glimpse of the symbiotic interactions that take place among the residents of the coral reefs by looking at clownfish, damselfish, wrasse, and various corals.
A variety of freshwater fishes are displayed in the area, which comprises three linked tanks with a river-flowing design.

The Temperate Section includes lively African Penguins and South American Fur Seals. Visitors will have the opportunity to observe African Penguins swimming around in a setting that is as similar to their natural habitat as possible by walking through an 8-meter tunnel. We recommend seeing them around feeding time when the aquarium puts on shows.

There are some dangerous underwater species in the Venomous and Poisonous Creatures area. The Moray Eels and Lionfish may appear friendly and docile, but they conceal lethal weapons beneath their needle-sharp teeth and spiny fins. Sea snakes, rockfish, and lionfish are just a few of the marine animals that you can find here.
