I just LOVE aquariums. I’ve only been to three in my whole life, but I could see them all, and spend weeks and weeks in an aquarium! I love sea life and water. Zoos are boring to me, but aquariums are so spectacular!
It’s no surprise that I discovered some very unique aquariums, online. WOW. I have GOT to see some of these places someday.
The largest aquarium in the world is the Georgia Aquarium, in Atlanta, Georgia. It has more than 8 million US gallons of marine and fresh water housing more than 100,000 animals. The aquarium’s notable specimens include four young whale sharks, three beluga whales and two manta rays. Woooooooooooooooooooow! I wanna go I wanna go!! I would do just as these kids are doing.
Then there’s the Aquadom in Berlin, Germany. It’s the, uh, largest aquarium that is a dome. (But I wonder if it is the ONLY aquarium that is a dome?) It has about 2,600 fish of 56 species. Two full-time divers daily clean the tank and feed the fish. Wow, what a job.
This next aquarium is a real one, yes! It’s in France and was featured in Woman’s Day online at womansday.com/Articles/Family-Lifestyle/Travel/7-Over-the-Top-Aquariums.html:
Believe it or not, this phone booth is real. Constructed for the 2007 Lyon Light Festival in France by artists Benoît Deseille and Benedetto Bufalino, the piece was intended to combine a phone booth and aquarium to create a unique way to house exotic fish.
