Put Into Perspective

Display panels here go into detail about some of the diversity of life in the water.


Putting things into perspective: three sculptures of giants of the seas, each with a person beside it in scale to reinforce how big they are. The gentle whale shark, the largest of all sharks, is the first.


The elusive giant squid is next.


And of course the blue whale, the largest animal on the planet.


For today we leave off with this panel.

  8. And I wonder if these are territorial at all...can't imagine a squid and a shark and a whale all in the same square mile or so.
