It’s starting to heat up here, so I thought a trip to the aquarium would cool me down.
Osaka Kaiyukan had a renewal last year and we hadn’t been since, so we were interested to see what had changed.
We started by watching the otters be fed…
…then the dolphins.
I like the tanks full of random fish.
Although J isn’t too keen on the massive crab! Haha!
I think jellyfish are so relaxing to watch!
Everything up until this point was the same as before, at the end we finally came to the renewal area.
It consisted of a touch pool with sting rays and fish for children to touch, some penguins and a clown fish. A small tropical area with a very relaxed sloth, two otters and a monkey.
At the very end was a dome where you could see up into the new seal tank.
This guy wanted to make friends with J, so cute!
