At The Back Of Manila Ocean Park

Here is the one of the photo I got when I went at the back of Manila Ocean Park. The sea that you see is actually the Manila Bay. This part of Manila Ocean Park is a great place to enjoy the sunset.

Just Watching Them

Here are photos that some kind of a neat shot. Even without flash of my digital camera, these snapshots looks so cool for me. Not just cool but also a scenic view. I really don't know what kind of fish they are since I captured them while I was at the underwater tunnel.

Estuarine Stonefish

Here is my contribution for Ruby Tuesday. Stonefish which cannot immediately identify that it is a fish. Look at it closely. If not because of its eyes and fins I can barely notice that there is a sea creature inside this aquarium.

Here is the excerpt I got from the Manila Ocean Park for Estuarine Stonefish.

Called as "Sumalapaw" in Filipino language. This can be found in Indo-West Pacific like India, China, Philippines, Papua New Guinea and Australia. They live in coral reef and estuaries. They eat fish and crustaceans. Makes a shallow depression by scooping up sand or muds with its pectoral fins until it is piled up around the side of its body. Comes out at night and often moves on top of reefs. Listed in the Guinnes Book of Record as the most venomous fish in the world.

The Starfish and The Shark

I captured these photos when I was watching the little shark during feeding time, still at Manila Ocean Park.

A Giant Spider Crab

Here is the snapshot of giant spider crab which I captured from Manila Ocean Park and this species can be found at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean in Japan. It has a lifespan of 100 years and has a diet for dead animals and shellfish. These Japanese spider crab is the largest living arthropod.

A Coral Reef That I Captured

Here is one of the coral reef I captured. I selected this because I can still recognize different objects even in monochrome colors. This is part of my Manila Ocean Park collection which captured last April 13, 2009.

Longhorn Cowfish

The two photos above are my snapshots directly coming from my camera.

This photo was captured from a video that I had recorded.

As a contribution to Yellow Mellow Monday, I select the photo I had for Longhorn Cowfish. This is one of the unique creatures I found from Manila Ocean Park. Photo captured last April 13, 2009.

Some excerpts I got:

In Filipino language, "Longhorn Cowfish" is called as "Baka Baka", they have a lifespan of 8 years, with a diet for benthic algae, sponges, polychate worms, mollusks, small crustaceans and small fish. Longhorn Cowfish is type of boxfish recognizable by its long horns that protrude from the front ot its head, rather like those of a cow or bull. It is able to find and feed on benthic invertrbrates by blowing jets of water into the sandy substrate. If stressed, this species can exude a deadly toxin, ostracitoxin, which resembles red tide and sea cocumber toxins in general properties.

Photos that I captured are some of the tried shots because the place is so dark inside, and flash camera are prohibited to avoid putting stress to the underwater world species.
