sending lillian off has done in the fun of this trip to australia (for that whole story click this). now i just want to go home, but am stuck here for another couple of days.
i'd already wasted one of my key cheer up places here in melbourne trying to improve lillian's mood. the problem was now i needed a happiness pick me up. fortunately there was one place left. i'd kinda wanted to save it for another lillian date, but that wasn't going to be a problem now...
the melbourne aquarium. man do i love going to aquariums!
now the funny thing about this aquarium is it is basically just a bigger version of the last aquarium i was at, kelly tarlton's experience. as you'll see. which wasn't a bad thing. i really liked the auckland aquarium. as a bonus it had some extra things i'd never seen before (though it also didn't have penguins).the first thing you see, was COOL AS! a cuttlefish. i'd never seen one before. ubber cool.
there was a real nice reef section, like in most aquariums... oooooh pretty
see!hey i found nemo! (oh wait i've said this joke before)
tigger fish i've ever pulled off (they're just so dared fast!).
a cute little lobster... er sorry, again as they call them here crayfish.
than there was this HUGE reef tank. full of all sorts of new reef critters i'd never seen before.
just like this big clam. i'd seen fossils of similar sized ones from the cretaceous (though they weren't the same shape).
hey now there is something i'm not surprised to see. a statue of a great white shark. seriously i need to start a business making these things. they're everywhere kelly tarlton's, the auckland museum, and te papa. i'd be stinking rich.
of course this was to let me know i'm entering the shark area.
