Maribor aquarium and terrarium
Well, here we are with a few images taken in April of 2008.
The fish tanks in the aquarium date back to 1953.
The thirty-nine large tanks imitate river, lake and
sea and house 129 species
of fish from different parts of the world.
Kids are crazy about tropical fish and their colorful fish tank.
They host some seriously venomous
snakes like African mamba, the American
rattle snake, African cobra and more.
The terrarium exhibits over a hundred different species
of reptiles, amphibia, insects and many other
hard to believe creatures.
I am always amazed to see turtles crawling around
crocodiles without any fear of being harmed.
This is certainly Marusa's favourite animal Maribor aquarium.
Every time when Marusa moves to the left or to the
right this turtle follows her.
What are you looking at?
We were really happy when we received news of a new aquarium to be built in Maribor. The location and detailed plans are not known yet but it's about time. That would be great for all animals to the benefit of more space and better living conditions and for all animal-lovers, tourists and Mariborians who visit the aquarium. After all it is one of the most important aquariums in Central Europe.
