Aquariums and Zoos - A Photo Thread

This thread is dedicated to photos of aquarium and zoo buildings and exhibits, with an emphasis on their architecture rather their their inhabitants. Architecture of these specialized facilities includes traditional structures (usually more impressive in aquariums), themed structures (often for geographical interpretation), and landscape structures (such as simulated rock walls for naturalized containment).

It is an additive thread so feel free to post your own photos or others found on the web! It will probably be appreciated if posts clearly label what and where the aquarium or zoo is. The number of photos of each aquarium or zoo should probably be kept to the minimum that illustrate the project clearly in order to keep the thread lively and varied.

Geomorph, I'm impressed with your travels and photos, and also the perfect weather you encountered. Thanks for posting this great thread! I don't know which I enjoyed more...this or your museum thread.
