CosmoCaixa Science Museum: Exotic Aquarium

CosmoCaixa Science Museum: Exotic Aquarium [enlarge]

This fish I photographed at Cosmocaixa Science Museum (check mark on map). There is a big tank with exotic species in a simulation of a jungle habitat in the Amazonian rivers. I can't tell you what it is. It looks like a snook to me because of the shape but it doesn't have a lateral stripe. There were also pirannas in there. There is a part of the tank where you have the water level at the reach of your hands, there is no protection, just a sign that says "watch it, pirannas are carnivore fish" although someone told me there is a herbivore specimen. I suggest you don't try to find out.


  1. wow!

    hey, careful with your hands!!
    pirannas are man eaters! haha..

  2. its really very amazing angle! I almost can touch

    Por cierto, que siempre me han parecido inquietantes los animales que anidan bajo el mar... son tan diferentes...
    Un saludito!

  5. Gracias Dsole. Espero que vaya todo bien por allá. Futbol aparte vaya. :) Abrazos.
