Dish Fish, Artis Zoo. Amazing sea aquariums of the world
A window to the wonders of the ocean
The ocean is an infinitely amazing place, and the reproduction of the flora and fauna of the ocean on Earth is just as amazing
There are aquariums designed specifically to demonstrate the beauty of the ocean to the world. Some of them are so impressive that they are able to compete in beauty with mother nature. Life on Earth originated in water. Hundreds of millions of years ago, the seas and oceans of our planet inhabited many of the most unusual representatives of the fauna. The modern underwater world is also surprisingly rich and diverse. It is inhabited by millions of living beings, the appearance and bizarre forms of which are amazing. Some of them are so unusual that they are easily confused with plants.
Anyone who is seriously engaged in diving, has the opportunity to appreciate the unique beauty of the underwater world. However, it is possible to see all the diversity of marine life, as well as to get acquainted with underwater inhabitants, in a different way - by visiting the famous huge aquariums, where the mysterious world of oceans and seas appears in all its beauty and diversity. Most modern aquariums seek to find endangered species, and provide them with a favorable habitat.
Most oceanariums are simultaneously a scientific laboratory. Some aquariums, in addition to the richest collection of various representatives of the marine fauna, have their own garden, which presents many species of rare plants brought from different corners of the globe. Some also feature seabirds. The complex sometimes also includes a zoo located above or around the aquarium. Some aquariums feature interesting exhibits on specific topics.
Almost all of us are convinced that the sex of every living organism is determined during development in the womb, and is maintained for life. However, in nature there are about 500 species of fish that, if necessary, can change their gender and turn from females to males, and vice versa. How and why they do this, it was still a mystery to scientists, but a group of researchers from New Zealand was finally able to answer this question. They explained this process using fish called the blue-headed thalasoma, which live in the Caribbean, as an example. These tropical fish live in groups in which there are several females and only one male. The male is distinguished among them by the blue coloring of the head, and is mainly engaged in finding food and protecting females from predators. Such a way of life is very dangerous, therefore males are often lost or die, therefore one of the females willy-nilly has to turn into a male herself and take her girlfriends under her protection.
Tourists and city residents visit oceanariums to get acquainted with the amazing inhabitants of the seas, rivers and rivers of the planet Earth
Huge glass containers located in oceanarium complexes allow millions of curious spectators to see for themselves what is happening in the ocean. There, behind especially strong surfaces are collected in the conditions close to their natural habitat, thousands of sea and oceanic inhabitants. In addition to the entertainment function, they also perform educational tasks, and most importantly, act as a kind of reservoir for the conservation of representatives of the marine fauna disappearing in nature, which are already listed in the Red Book today.
Many aquariums showcases the rarest animals in the world. Visitors are delighted when they see Antarctic penguins, alligators from the Yangtze River, Chinese water dragons, white sharks, black and white stingrays, and giant salamanders and many other creatures that are rarely seen in the wild. In some aquariums, guests are admired by a pedestrian tunnel that is built right inside the aquarium.
Walking through this tunnel will make visitors feel that they are walking through the aquarium. The tunnel provides an excellent overview, and the view will fascinate even the most discerning tourists. The best modern aquariums are almost indistinguishable from the natural habitats of marine fauna and flora. In some of the modern aquariums, thrill-seekers can dive with sharks.
Those who are ready for a desperate adventure should take care of the tickets well in advance, as there are always many people who want to embark on a dangerous journey. You can also feed the animals, and take a walk through the forest of kelp. The most common size for a home aquarium is 50-60 liters, although some people manage to build aquariums of 1000 liters or more at home. But there are such masterpieces in the world in which a whole lake of water can fit, you can keep whales, sharks, and other sea giants in them.
The underwater world is not so quiet as it seems to us. Researchers have found that fish can "talk" to each other. Fish use a variety of sounds, such as grunting, chirping, and popping. It is believed that fish communicate with each other for a variety of reasons, including attracting partners, scaring away predators or navigating in space. Some reef fish, such as those from the pomocenter family, make sounds in an attempt to scare away threatening fish and even divers.
