Bloggers JAW-SOME Day 2016 @ Aquaria KLCC

Wednesday, May 04, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-

I was the one being excited because I am going to bring my girl to Aquaria KLCC which is her first visit to this place.  We had a 'Jaw-some' time together along with other bloggers and have friendly staff to give us a short tour and explain to us the 7 different zone inside the Aquaria KLCC. The 7 zone are The Evolution Zone, The Coast, The Shipwreck, The Stream, Weird & Wonderful, Deep Forest and Living Ocean.
Aquaria KLCC, a world-class aquarium that showcases marine life and animals from Malaysia and around the world.

It is an oceanarium showcasing over 5,000 different exhibits of aquatic and land-bound creatures over a sprawling 60,000 square foot space right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur's city centre.



We are greeted by the Piranha Tank. It may look scary but it is not harmful.

Our adventure begins
Here is Gene pool. We get to touch some of the water creatures such as live starfish, bamboo sharks and sea cucumber. I am not daring enough, so I just took photos. Do not worry. You can always wash your hand at the side where they provide a place to clean our hands. The staff are very friendly, helpful and informative.


Be caution on the electric zone. Here we can see Electric Catfish. The Electric catfish is a nocturnal fish, mostly active after sunset.The electric catfish is widely known for medicinal purposes among Egyptians, Arabs and Africans for treating mild anxiety disorder. 
Oriental Whip Snake can be found in Riverbank Jungle.

They are hiding and camera shy. Once they come out, I quickly snap few photos. This are the only mammals in Aquaria, the Asian small -clawded Otter. Long bodies with short legs, short, dense brown coloured fur with pale underside, patchy white areas on the chest, short claws and partly webbed toes. They communicate using up to 12 varieties of vocalizations, posturing and grooming. That is so interesting.
Now we are heading to deep ocean inside shipwreck





To discover beautiful underwater carols and fish at the well known island such as Redang Island, Pulau Perhentian,Tioman Island, Payar Island, Tinggi Island and etc.


We move on to Amazon Flooded Forest where I spotted Alligator Garfish, Black Pacu, Arapaima, Silver Arowana and Redtail Catfish

Creeping box activities. Three volunteers try this activities and it was freaking scary to me. You have to touch what's inside the box . I keep asking my girl " Would you like to try?" and you will get present. She point at me asking me to go instead. I am afraid and not willing to even try once. I suspect inside must be hamster? Chick? or cockroach?



The most anticipated moment is to enter the Sharks zone



My girl are amazed by this underwater tunnel. Oceanarium boasts a 90-metre transparent tunnel with a moving walkway to take you past Sand Tiger sharks, Giant Stingrays, Marine turtles and shoals of other fishes.There are more than hundreds of fishes, surrounds you. It was fun watching them swimming freely in this living oceans and memorable experience for both of us.

We are heading towards the new section MoonLab's Holodeck (ARV) where we get a unique reality experience.
