Kaiyukan - Osaka

Last weekend I took a trip to the aquarium here in Osaka, the Kaiyukan.
Where we saw many fishes and over heard the odd person saying how tasty a particular fish looked.

An Iguanna, relaxing above the amazonian fishes.

It's looking right at me!

One of the two whale sharks that are major attractions for the aquarium. There isn't much in the back ground give a good representation of the size of this whale shark, but its mouth is about 1 metre wide.

Sardines! Swimming 'round and 'round. Every now and then, the squid in the upper left help themselves to their very own kaitenzushi (the coveyor belt sushi restaurants).

Near the end of the aquarium is a specialized area hosting various jellyfish, who float around and ponder the mysteries of the universe.
