The wait is finally over. After its supposed opening last December, the Manila Ocean Park is now open. Its main attraction is the Oceanarium, the first and largest aquarium facility in the Philippines.
The tour begins with Agos or Flow. The exhibit recreates the habitat of different creatures belonging to fresh and brackish water like the giant arapaima, piranhas and different types of crabs.
The Bahura or Reef features some of the most fascinating creatures in the Philippine coral reef like the largest living anthropod –Japanese spider crab.
Buhay Karagatan (the Living Ocean) gives the experience of underwater life through a 25 meter-log tunnel that showcases various marine creatures and how they manage to survive (It features how predators feed on little creatures in order for them to survive).
