Carlos Slims, Mexican business magnate and investor, who was once ranked the richest man in the world, recently inaugurated an aquarium in Mexico City on Friday, May 30, 2014. The Inbursa Aquarium is one of the largest in Latin America; a four-level, underground aquarium with over 3000 different animals housed in it. There is a large underground 400,000 gallon glass tank housing brightly colored tropical fish swimming alongside sharks and manta rays. The aquarium brings the water in from the Gulf of Mexico.  The four different floors host a wide variety of marine life including piranhas, turtles and crocodiles, along with a lagoon that allows visitors to pet sting rays. The Inbursa Aquarium is scheduled to open to the public on June 11, 2014 and has an entry fee of $10.00/person.
