I went for a reverse date to KLCC Aquaria with my girlfriend last month.. The aquarium is open from 11am 8pm daily, with last admission at 7pm , it is open to the public even on school and public holidays. Here’s some photos from KLCC Aquaria trip.
Before we went down to Aquaria, we had lunch at a organic shop in SS2..
haha.. eat some healthy food 😛
I ordered mushroom fried rice..
and some vege soup..nice!
After lunch, we went straight to KLCC Aquaria,
bought the tickets for entrace, it cost RM 28 per person, make sure you bring along your MyKad to entitle for a special discount.. Malaysian citizen only 😛
The first area that you will see is the touch pool where you can touch some sea creatures like star fish, lobster, etc..
keke.. I got you!! don’t try to run away 😛
don’t play play..they even have electric fish 😛
then we can see some turtles under the Malaysian Turtle Conservation Programme..
Turtles are threatened at every stage in their life-cycle. Aquaria KLCC has started a Turtle Conservation programme in collaboration with KUSTEM (Kolej Universiti Sains & Teknologi Malaysia) & The Department of Fisheries in aid and support of the rehabilitation, conservation, research, and education in turtle conservation.
The species in the conservation and rehabilitation programmes are the endangered Green turtle (Chelonia mydas), the endangered Hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata);
the critically endangered River terrapin (Batagur baska) and the endangered Painted terrapin (Callagur borneoensis).
Aquaria KLCC is conceptualized & built based on the Journey of water from land to sea. So as you embark on a journey from misty mountains down majestic rivers, through lush rainforests and waterlogged mangroves, you can different animals from the rainforest.. here’s a slimmy looking green snake..
a sleepy iguana..
and a gigantic forest toad..
a giant black beetle..
there even a funny looking monkey which keep climbing around..
very hard to get a good shot at him 😛
ei… where my food??
As you dive deeper to navigate through colorful coral reefs and dive head on into the ominous deep blue sea…
this is one strange looking tube fish..
Experience a €˜face-to-face` encounter with some of the most unusual, unique and enchanting marine animals.
I was fascinated by the sea horse, frog fish, eels and other enchanting strange life forms that exist in the depths of the ocean.
Flooded Forest Tube Tank
This unique 5.3 metre high Flooded Forest Tube tank enchants visitors with aquatic exhibits that languidly swim within the water column up to the treetops..
Check out the amount of fishes in the tube tank..very amazing 🙂
Sorry need to stop here first.. to be continue later in part II while I upload the rest of the photos which will include the Aqua Theatre, Shark feeding videos, and the Underwater Tunnel… come back soon! 😀
