Valencia has the largest aquarium in Europe in its City of Arts and Sciences complex. We visited yesterday.
Ezra, my nephew, is a fan of aquariums, and this one had some pretty cool stuff, including plenty of sharks.
The Oceanografic is layed out like a huge waterlilly, and fits well with the hypermodern style surrounding it.
Each “petal” of the waterlily houses a different environment, like the Mediterranean or the Arctic or the Tropics. Outside the environments there are ponds with various types of waterfowl and wildlife.
The sharks were swimming freely with the rest of the fish.
And Mary kept asking why the sharks weren’t feasting on the other fish. I think she was hoping for a less tranquil show.
I’ll end this post by letting the dolphins say their own goodbye.
