The first thing that pops out in my mind when I heard we were going to the Underwater World at Sentosa Island was the movie ''Waterworld'' by Russell Crowe. An unforgettable film about people searching for land and what would people do to have more power and control. There are lots of interesting sea creatures however, as always I was already running out of batteries, so I only had a few shots. The Leafy Sea Dragon was really something, it can absolutely protect itself from predators without any delays.

The place welcomes you to a different world you walk through a hallway with sharks, stingrays, all kinds of small and big fishes swimming in all corners.  They're enclosed in a tank,a big sized aquarium that serves as the wall and ceiling along the way. It was really amazing to see these creatures right before your very eyes. My favorite were the jellyfish , also known as jellies or sea jellies or Medusozoa. They adapt to their environment and they change color basing on the lights inside their tanks which also changes every minute. These sea creature are called the Sea Nettle Jellyfish. 
When it's feeding time for the Stingrays go ahead and try it , just for a few bucks you'll be able to feed them and feel their mouths sucking the food out from your hand.

An Octopus seems like a great pet for gangster, both looks scary. While another jellyfish called the Moon jelly or Moon Jellyfish. with ribbon like tails were like melted buttons in top view. The Underwater World has made me realize how many more beautiful species we have down there in the vast ocean lurking around.
