[ Media Invite and Tickets giveaway ]
When we pop by Singapore Science Centre’s Monsters of the Sea exhibition last week, an upsized Giant Squid greeted us. We were not thinking of calamari, but our anticipation of seeing monsters immediately escalated one notch!
Modern day’s monster crocodiles and sharks can reach 20 feet (about 6 metres) and not many people dare to swim next to them. The gentle whale shark (12m) is even larger but allows humans to snorkel next to it (she is on our bucket list)
Ocean covers more than 70% of Earth’s surface, and we know so little about the deep.
– Why do whales beach themselves?
– Why do people associate oarfish in shallow water as a sign that earthquake is imminent?
– Extinct species “Coelacanth” were found off the coast of Africa.
– Hollywood always reveals monsters hidden underneath Earth’s crust, released with Tectonic movements
Monsters could still be lurking out of sight, or perhaps some species can grow to monster sizes again?
Theoretically, sharks and crocodiles keep growing after maturity, and I wonder what would happen if they are allowed to grow up to 100 years old (in the wild).
Humans will only be snacks for these prehistoric giants. Documentaries indicate super crocodiles hunt dinosaurs! Paleontologists estimate megalodon to be between 15 to 18m, our SBS bus is only 12m long!
Thank you Science Centre for the Fun and educational invite, I had fun sharing and relieving the prehistoric journey with my kids. I shared some Youtube clips with the boys after our exhibition.
My intrigue in dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures started with BBC “Walking with Dinosaurs”, and the interesting commentaries from Nigel Marven‘s prehistoric series. When we thought dinosaurs were cool and mean, those living under the water are in another league all together!
