During TXU Energy presents Undersea Discovery, guests can experience the ocean from the rocky coast to the deepest sea and observe some of the most amazing marine creatures in the world, right here in Houston.

As you walk through the life-sized jaws of the Megalodon, you’ll meet other animatronic behemoths of the ocean like the oceanic manta ray with an 18-foot wingspan. Along the path, you’ll see the flashy but deadly blue-ringed octopus and the Japanese spider crab with the largest leg span of any arthropod.

Throughout the exhibit, learn more about coral reefs—essential to the marine ecosystem—and why it’s important to help protect them. You will also encounter rarely seen animals like the anglerfish and its luminescent fin ray that helps lure in its next meal in the deepest depths of the ocean.

During your journey, discover threats their real counterparts are facing in the wild and how you can take action to help save them.
