Sorry I haven't been posting much lately :roll: I've been reading but seems I don't have much to say... Aight, anyways, a couple of weeks back I visited the Underwater World again. And yes I've got photo's to share :heee:.

Things haven't really changed sinced the last time I went, only now they have Nautilus a few changed tanks and a small fossil exhibit... The nautilus were boring yet awesome to watch at the same time. ey were pretty much hanging there, chilling out, hanging there, chilling out, movement was minimal.

First one is obviously the nautilus... next two are fossils.

Crap, I still can't work out getting the photo to be part of the text, not a thumbnail :evil:

Another pic of an ammonite. Who could forget the cuttles?!? The second one is a cuttle cleaning it's tentacles, it shed a couple of sucker rings shortly after.

The last pic if i'm not mistaken is the same cuttle turned around but you can see he's still watching... Not sure if you noticed but there's also a dead cuttle in the background( for those of you who ever wanted to see one )... lucky thing he didn't ink beforehe passed on...

First cuttle strikes a beautiful pose, still reminds me of Zoidberg... Second cuttle was extremely curious and came in to see what I was doing and even followed the camera around. Also a example showing how cuttles open up their pupils when focusing on something as compared to being relaxed in the other pics.

Nice pics! Is it just me, or is the nautilus in pic 1 starting to show the tell-tale shell deformations from aquarium life?
