Popped in on an afternoon of exploring melaka, first stop is the touch pool where staff chuck fish around for you to have a touch,bringing them all out of the water for a bit, clearly distressing them, most of them constantly trying to wriggle free, stingrays have had their sting removed to allow them to be touched..
Several tanks contained fish with visible damage from repeatably swimming into the walls of their overcrowded tanks, the young sea turtles were absolutely jammed into their tanks and the larger ones which were in a larger pool were constantly swimming full pelt into the sides and trying to climb out to escape their tank! Again completely over filled with barely any room to themselves. compare this to an aquarium in vietnam where 3 turtles shared a space of 25mx25m.
There was one exhibit where a crocodile shared a tank with some frogs.. and frog skeletons, probs not beign fed enough.
one to avoid!
