Photo and description
Aquarium in Kuala Lumpur is considered one of the most visited in Malaysia and one of the largest in the entire Asian southeast. It is located on the lower level of the city exhibition center, a stone's throw from the Petronas Towers - in the very center of the capital.
The aquarium was opened in 2005 and in a short time managed to become a record holder in popularity and attendance. In its giant glass containers, no less than five thousand sea inhabitants swim in their native element - not only local, but also brought from all over the world. Among them are stingrays, piranhas, sea turtles and tiger sharks.
Before starting acquaintance with the inhabitants of the aquariums, visitors are invited to view the fauna of coral reefs, mangrove forests and, not at all connected with the sea, representatives of the highlands and jungles of the tropics. Terrariums and outdoor pools are nearby. The latter are home to a variety of marine life - squid, scallops, starfish and crabs. They are allowed to be held in hands without removing them from the water. In terrariums, their inhabitants are snakes, crocodiles, and other reptiles. They can no longer be touched, and no one has any desire.
Visitors experience undisguised interest and admiration at the sight of an aquarium with a domed bottom. Under this dome, observing the "population" of this artificial reservoir becomes doubly exciting.
The "highlight" of the aquarium is a 90-meter long tunnel made of high-strength glass, lying at the bottom of a huge pool. The tunnel is equipped with a moving footpath, through which tourists move past the inhabitants of the deep sea. Among them there is a very rare specimen - arapaima. It is considered the largest freshwater fish in the world. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that this fish can breathe ordinary earthly air. And the main feature of arapaima is its age. She lived in South American waters back in the era of the dinosaurs. Now this living fossil can be seen in the Malaysian aquarium.
Each of the aquariums has its own feeding schedule, which gives visitors the opportunity to watch this entertaining process and even participate in it. Also, those who wish can dive into the possession of marine predators - in scuba gear and a steel cage.She lived in South American waters back in the era of the dinosaurs. Now this living fossil can be seen in the Malaysian aquarium.
