Aquaria KLCC

Aquaria KLCCAquaria KLCC is not only displaying marine species but also exhibit land animals for educational awareness. At the vicinity of well known shopping complex – Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC), there is a spot within the shopping complex where visitors can have a look on sea creatures.

You may surprised that Piranha, notorious for hunting human’s blood  which originally found in South American rivers can be spotted here;  same with  Arapaima from the same rivers, it is  surely be interesting to see one of the largest fish species swimming across the big aquarium. Still remember how adorable is ‘Paul the Octopus’? The one in here, Giant Pacific octopus might not good in predicting the next world cup winner, yet it mimics the gesture of little toddler who play with items, moving little fingers and etc. Other worth-to-see species are the Giant Blotched Fantail Ray, Otter, water rat, potbelly seahorse, Coati Mundi, and Moon Jelly.

Who does not like food? And apparently, feeding time is the best moment for visitors to see aquatic animals to be in action to get their food. They will tend to be more active and come out from hiding places. The oceanarium is not only limiting visitors to learn about tropical water species, but it also aim to bring basic educational awareness that the sea and jungles are interconnected system. Aquaria KLCC has created a section of ‘The jewels of the Forest’ to showcase the ancient rainforest trees and habitats such as lizard, frogs and poisonous snakes. With collaboration with state museum, the two-level mock marine-forest place portrays the replica of the possible insects-butterfly on display board.
