What is the difference between the cute yellow and white creature, and the one below encased in stone?
Both are fossils, one living and the other extinct! If Ichthyosaur is still alive today, it would be able to dive 600m effortlessly!
At the exhibition area of Sea Aquarium’s latest exhibit, Sea Monsters, visitors can travel back 100 millions of years to witness evolution.
If Boon Yee knew Plesiosaur can swallow its prey in one mouth, he would hesitate to pose so near!
We can watch a plesioaur swim again with Augment Reality, download app “SPH AR”.
At one corner, Nanyang Polytechnic wished to remind us to take care of our environment. Reduce, reuse and recycle!
If you are scared of Jaws (Great White shark), meet its grandpa Megalodon. A whopping 30 times bigger than a Great White!
Just look at the 19cm tooth!
Other giants from the placoderm family, I would not jump into a sea with the 11m monster Placoderm Dunkleosteus! It has beak-like mouth (hard and sharp), just image the painful encounter from a parrot beak (then upsize to Placoderm portion!)
Looks like cockroaches! Only much bigger (multiplies the yuck factor)
A poster depicting the timeline of Sea monsters. Different eras of sea monsters!
Not all dinosaurs and sea monsters are extinct. Some descendants are among us today. Alligator Gar can grow up to 2.5m long! Coelacanth was thought extinct 80million years ago but can still be found today.
The beautiful arowana also has a long history, we spotted a cute hermit crab with a glass roof.
Mudskippers can be spotted at swarms, and I have not seen a live Horse shoe crab moving around before. Its legs are like little forks.
If you are a fan of dinosaur (or Jurassic World), Sea Monsters will be “swimming” till 30Sep.
The friendly class95 DJs. We won a pair of annual tickets in a contest yeah!
We spend the rest of the hour revisiting the other exhibits at Sea Aquarium.
These are not living fossils, but as mesmerizing 🙂
Touch pool, long queue to touch the resident star fish.
Spotted local Icons, Chili Crab, and SG50 🙂
