More than 100 species of seashells
My all time favorite is watching the penguins walk left and right using their tiny petite legs…It’s too adorable…Usually, they walk for a short distance and the will stand still for a while before continuing, some will dive into the water for a quick bath!
Second highlight is this unique Mamorset… First time seeing one, they have a tiny face with whisker alike ear! Do you know marmoset is the smallest monkey found in the Amazon?When I passing by they keep running back to their cave and I could hardly take picture of their face!! So below pic was taken by Tian Chad!
Of course we see many fishes, jelly, seashells and many other sea creature exhibit in the specifically designed aquarium!
I find the jelly fish the most attractive one most like because of their stunning bright hue! Towards the end of the showroom, we saw this weird fish that has a very long body which can swim through the holes of the sea rocks… Literally like a longggggggg snake fish!
Shall we continue our animal exploring?? What about eagle watching?
