Well hello friends! How has your February been so far? I'm sure everyone had a good start to this month of lala-love ;)
Eric in action ;D
The tour began with the introduction of a little reptile friend, a Plumbeous Water Snake!
Mildly venomous but according to Eric there is an antidote, rejoice! All is not forsaken. Next up was the Cave Fauna, a small man made cave with posters of various caves found throughout Malaysia and the type of insects we can expect to see inside it... now everyone say, "eeeewww~"... KIDDING! hehe.
Next up, the fishes! The tanks were a little gloomy (if you know what I mean) because it was already cleaned but fishes gotta do what they gotta do :p
A variety of fishes of all sizes can be found in the aquariums.
Eric talking about the fish habitat and behaviours.
We had a friendly reptile to hang with us as well, or in my case, to scare me! FYI, not a huge fan of snakes and everything that falls in the same category.
What happens if Precious and Axel were put together? Lets just say, I will never do it again. Hmm.
We then went along to see the turtles, and more of the fish tanks. We had a fun time playing the "How many Nemo-like fish types can you spot?" in the round tank. Photos below.
Before the tour ended, we were treated to a fish feeding show, whereby a member of the Green Connection staff swam in a huge tank and fed the stingrays, fishes, turtles and shark.
According to Eric, these fishes travel in a circular motion. Their like a bus that goes from end to end, and repeats the same path every time.
Taking the No Shark Fin soup pledge. Boy, this was funny. :D
SYTA ambassadors & Gang :)
The tour ended with the last section of the aquarium, starfishes and a few other shelled creatures section.
Bye-bye Green Connection, it was a very educational tour. Special thanks to Mr.Eric Yu, once again, for being an awesome guide. :)
