For some of us, creatures underwater are very interesting. Various fish and other animals the call the sea their home eventually want to be seen in some form. Some even are tasked with making sure the animals are safe in nature.
But for most of us, the closest we'll get to any type of sea animals is either at the beach or in an aquarium. We've all seen fish swimming in the sea haven't we? But if you're like me, the risk of other somewhat scary animals such as a jellyfish stops me from swimming out too far into the ocean.
Then there's this animal we all know and are somewhat wary of. Sharks. Most of us tend to avoid getting near sharks.
But one aquarium in Texas has a way to see sharks, without even going underwater.

I have to be honest, this photo has really sold me on the idea of an underwater train ride. According to Narcity, the train even stops in the middle of the tank so you can take in all the animals in the tank, and not just sharks.
