Portland Aquarium, a December 2012 addition to Milwaukie, introduces visitors to thousands of waterborne species. Guests can slide their hands along the smooth flesh of a stingray or the knobby arms of a starfish or engage in staring contests with a blacktip reef shark. Other planned exhibits include a jellyfish exhibit, a cold-water tank filled with fish native to Oregon's coast, and a rainforest-themed jungle gym for children. The tropical touch-tank woos visits with its displays of vibrant-color aquatic life while amphibious wonders, including poison dart frogs, thrill visitors. Those seeking bigger thrills may hoist various pythons species–including a15-foot reticulated or 9-foot albino burmese snake–upon their shoulders or get their picture taken with macaw parrot. Landing-loving iguanas and panter chameleons also lurch around in the mix.
Located at 16323 S.E. McLoughlin Blvd., the Portland Aquarium is on a two-acre site that allows for expansion. The aquarium offers a hands-on experience that provides opportunities to touch and feed aquarium animals.

The tail of the stingray features one or more poisonous barbs, used only for self-defense. Generally, stingrays are docile and curious and will swim close to divers and snorkelers without fear.
