Kyoto Aquarium - 京都水族館

The New Aquarium in Kyoto.

One of the main exhibits at this aquarium are the Giant Salamanders.
They really are giants too averaging between 1m and 1.5m in length.  
I think they are cute too, maybe it's the stubby fingers on their toddler sized hands.


Moray Eel, proud owner of pharygeal jaws, just like the xenomorphs from Alien.




There was also a very nice jellyfish display.

 


My favourite living fossil the Nautilus.

The other main attraction was the dolphin show.
