Our Dubai: Part Three : Visiting an Aquarium

The Dubai Mall Aquarium. Wonderful. I loved it. We easily spent two hours there and if I had my sketch book with me I could have spent longer. I love and hate these places. I love them because I love animals and to be able to see them with my own eyes fills me with awe. I hate these places because I love animals and I hate that they are confined to human wonderment and small living quarters. Maybe its all they have known and they are not missing their once wild homes? Maybe they are being treated better than they would have been in the wild? Needless to say, I was awed and I have many more pictures to prove it.
Don't these fish look hilarious?
Otter hiding. 
Can you see him?
A beautiful lion fish. I love him. 
At first I thought he was a statue, and then he blinked...
A delicate deadly.
I may have teared up a little when seeing these penguins. So wonderful.
Sea horse.
This picture is for my sister. Its blurry yes, but awesome. And they were swimming right above me.
