Today, we had planned to go to Otaru, a nearby town. However, the weather was pretty crappy, so instead, we decided to go to the science center. Unfortunately, it is currently closed for remodeling until next April. Luckily, the aquarium is next door, so we went there.
First, we visited the super ugly sea life section. Really. It was not marked that way, but it should have been. Here is Sir Spikes-a-Lot, the crab.
Next, we saw this pretty spotted fish.
These looked like upside down jellyfish to us.
Maybe I’m weird, but I found this striped eel adorable.
Did you know starfish could be so fat? Neither did I. These reminded me of Patrick from Sponge Bob.
This crab will give you nightmares.
A cute octopus!!
Pretty striped shrimp.
There was a tank full of different types of puffer fish.
Some of these shrimp were so big, we questioned whether they should still be called shrimp.
These little eel snake things were super cute.
The otters were really cute! But, I think they were being kept in too small of an area.
There was a beautiful spotted seal, too!
This penguin was totally giving me the evil eye.
The lizard in the back likes to watch…
The next post will be about the Kaitaku no Mura – Hokkaido’s historical village.
