We were given a piece of paper where we have to find the rubber stamp hidden at every corner in the aquarium to stamp the correct answer. It’s a good education way for the visitors to know more information about the coral, fish…etc. After complete all the stamps, you can receive a souvenir from the Coral Wonderland. Great encouragement!

Once we stepped into the aquarium, there were many baby sharks appeared in front of us…

Nautilus (from Greek ????????, ‘sailor’) is the common name of pelagic marine mollusks of the cephalopod family Nautilidae, the sole extant family of the superfamily Nautilaceae and of its smaller but near equal suborder, Nautilina. It comprises six living species in two genera, the type of which is the genus Nautilus. Though it more specifically refers to species Nautilus pompilius, the name chambered nautilus is also used for any species of the Nautilidae. Source from Wikipedia.

I’m surprised that I can see the Nautilus in this Aquarium!

As usual, to the end of the journey in the Aquarium, we came to the Souvenirs area…but we didn’t buy anything from there.

Even the Aquarium is not very big, but we can witness and admiring the rare species in it, especially the Nautilus. It’s worth for the ticket!
