Kaiyukan Aquarium Osaka

Not much to say about this except, AWESOME. It is the biggest aquarium in the world and has two whalesharks, the biggest fishes in the world. Okay, so these two fellas, or girls (who can tell?) were only 4 or 5 metres long but they're still big and awesome. As an aside we swam with a whaleshark on Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia and the one we swam with was around 9 metres.
The sea otters were cute, the seals regal and the small dolphins from the Tasman sea were fast. They also had some King Penguins which I've never seen in captivity before. It was actually quite weird seeing them in captivity as the last time we saw these huge penguins was on Macquarie Island on our way to Antarctica.
Anyway, enough yapping here are the pretty pictures.
