Beijing Aquarium

While the Beijing Zoo, minus the pandas, was disturbing, the Beijing Aquarium was INCREDIBLE. Very very nice- it cost about 100 yuan, so a great deal more than the rest of the zoo (30 yuan) but still quite cheap. I think that they should increase the fair for the zoo so that they can afford to take better care of the animals.

Outside of the aquarium is this elaborate mural

They had an indoor rainforest area

Lots of different tanks and habitats as well- a large tank for sharks only

Colorful fish

Giant sea turtles- up close and personal

A little Nemo hiding in an anemone

And unique creatures like this lion fish

And spiny sea urchin
