Piranhas are pretty and glittery, until they open their mouth and expose their razor sharp teeth, then you remember they are vicious. I loved these fish, they looked like three grumpy old men.Proof that Nemo and Dory are friends in real life…just keep swimming, just keep swimming…They had a great coral display, in which they were actually growing more coral from pieces that were collected from the ocean.This Giant Pacific Octopus was possibly my favourite part. We were there when they were feeding it, and it came out from it’s hiding place in the rocks to chomp on some crab. It crawled along the glass showing it’s mouth amidst all it’s tentacles. It’s movements were just so fluid and magical.
I’m an aquarium junkee, I could sit and watch fish swim around all day. We stopped off in Newquay when we went to Cornwall last summer and while looking along the cliffs at a beach, noticed doors to an Aquarium. The weather wasn’t amazing, so we headed inside.
Are you aquarium obsessed? What are your favourite bits?
