I guess i will do some reviews for the zoos/aquariums i´m more able to. I´ll start with Lisbon Aquarium. Note: I will use google images for this review, so credit is for the photographers Oceanário de Lisboa Built in 1998 for the EXPO, it was the major attraction of the said event. Even if Lisbon already had an aquarium, the city council decided that a new, modern oceanarium was needed. Situated entirely on water, it´s shaped as an oil rig with anly a bridge connecting it to land, where everybody enters the main building. Recently a new building was built to house temporary exhibits. But let´s stop with the intro and talk about the visit itslef. As we arrive to Parque das Nações, it´s not hard to find the Oceanarium. Head to water and then look to both sides, you will find a very odd looking building that will be without a doubt the main part of the tour. We head to the ticket booth, now located in the new building. The prices are incredible low. For an adult, the entrance to the old building is 11 Euros, and 14 when the Temporary exhibit is included. We walk across the stairways and arrive at the first exhibit, wich is really good, even if temporary. It´s about the life of a sea turtle, and includes 5 rescued Loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) and many small fish species. We first sneak trough a little window where we are able to see some small tropical fishes, but no turtles on the sight. Until we arrive to an arched entry, where with luck there´s a turtle passing between your feet. It´s really great. We pass some more windows were we can see the turtles and arrive to a small room where there´s one seat facing the coral reef area and the other facing a sea prairie. Another cool touch. We follow the rout and leave the building. We walk across the main walkaway and arrive to the main tour of our visit. As we enter, the main tank, known as Global Ocean. It houses some impressing species, including a Lesser Manta, more known as Devil Ray (Mobula mobula) (until 2007 a Greater Manta Ray was also housed here, but when it arrived a wingspan of 3.5 metres, the aquarium staff decided to release it), 2 Sun Fish (Mola mola), one with 2 metres, a Giant Bowmouth Guitarfish (Rhina ancylostoma), Sand Tiger Shark ( Carcharias taurus), Sandbar Shark (Carcharhinus plumbeus), Giant Grouper (Epinephelus lanceolatus), Barracuda, Tuna and many other fish species, including more than 20 other shark and ray species. Continuing the tour, we turn right and face the terrestrial view of the North Atlantic Habitat, habited by large groups of Atlantic Puffin (Fratercula arctica), Razorbill (Alca torda) and Common Guillemot (Uria aalge), and underwater, small shark and cod co-habit with Crabs.
