Canyon Falls

Canyon Falls is the new home to our Asian small-clawed otters, which are back by popular demand and whose cute little faces will melt your heart. Asian small-clawed otters are the smallest and most social otter species in the world. Your family will love watching them from multiple vantage points as they swim and play next to a real indoor waterfall. 

Canyon Falls also exhibits two species of lizard never before seen at Newport Aquarium. Get nose-to-nose with a yellow monitor, a rare and active tree-dwelling lizard from Indonesia, and panther chameleon, one of the most colorful lizards in the world from Madagascar.
