Manila Ocean Park is the largest oceanarium in my beloved home country — Philippines. It is owned by China Oceanis Philippines Inc., a subsidiary of China Oceanis Inc., a Singaporean-registered firm. It is located behind Quirino Grandstand at Rizal Park (Manila), or commonly known as Luneta Park, a national people’s park where our national hero named Jose Rizal was exiled. It was opened on March 1, 2008.
Aside from its Oceanarium that houses 14,000 sea creatures from about 277 species indigenous in Southeast Asia,The Jellies Exhibit showcasing myriads of jellyfishes on display, the Trails to Antarctica that is considered the country’s first penguin park facility that features Humboldt penguins, the Birds of Prey Kingdom that houses free eagles, the Fish Spa where you can let your feet enjoy massage and relaxation through their continuous smooches, and Yexel’s Toy Museum where you can take pictures on assorted display of movie and TV memorabilia, there’s this also called World of Creepy Crawlies that is considered to be one of their main tourist attractions.
What makes this section special? It exhibits frogs, insects, spiders, worms, snakes, turtles, etc. caged in a very thick fiberglass to be shown as display or exhibit, which can be educational for kids. That’s why many kids here mostly from field trips pay a visit almost everyday.
So I have here some of my 20 pictures that I took when me and my sister went there a year ago. Although I’ve got lots of them including snakes, but I’ll just share here my 20 favorite crawlies in random order. Try to scrutinize their exotic appearance and you can up-vote either 1 or more of them.
So are you ready?
Get to know them now.
