Strange Sightings

This life sized model of a fish hangs overhead in the Water Gallery. It is a curious sight, called a Mola.


Another view of the blue whale skeleton.


Yet another oddity finds itself on this panel, which reminds us in the words of a quirky chaos theorist that life finds a way.


Water is not just about the sea, of course, and the Water Gallery focuses on freshwater too, including a large aquarium with a number of fish.


A terrareum here includes spotted turtles.

  2. Gosh the Mola and the glow in the dark fish are amazing for different reasons. It's the first time I've heard of a fish that enjoys sunbathing 😊

  3. ...a sunbathing fish, now that's a new one for me! Water is so simple and so complex and so important.
