Fish Tank — a story from Kevin

  • Two whale sharks in this aquarium.  They are trying to breed whale shark in captivity.
  • This is the biggest viewing glass panel in the world.
  • Same aquarium, ten years ago, successfully developed a prosthetic tail fin for a dolphin that had to have it's tail fin amputated. Amazing!
  • That glass panel took 3 months to cool after manufacture! It's hard to imagine how they put the whole thing up, and how they move the whale sharks into it.
