Fantastic Foto Friday: Singapore Aquarium

I love to scuba dive. But sometimes, a visit to the aquarium is the next-best thing. Especially, if it is as good as the SEA Aquarium on Sentosa Island, Singapore. From giant eels like in this pictures, to scary sharks and huge, gentle manta’s there is lots to see and something to learn, too.
