There is an Aquarium and Museum just beside the Marine’s faculty. Before the SEA WORLD of 1 Borneo open, this is the only aquarium in Sabah. This aquarium does open for public visitor at a very low rate. If I’m not mistaken, it just needs RM5 or RM6 per entry but it is free for UMS student. Before I show you the aquarium, I hope you don’t expect it is as good as the KLCC aquaria. You can see shark or stingray here but there are sea turtle!
Today there are lots of visitor here.
The picture below shows the entire aquarium. After an hour plus of waiting, finally I’m able to take the photo of the empty aquarium.
There is a skeleton of a Cuvier’s Beaked Whale in the Marine Museum. Cuvier's Beaked Whale has a short. Some of them are dark grey, others a reddish-brown. Cuvier’s Beaked Whale can grow up to about seven meters in length and weighs 2-3 metric tons. They can live up to forty years.

Well, this post is just a brief introduction of my university’s aquarium. For my upcoming post, I’ll post all the sea creatures you can see in this aquarium. So stay with me. I'm sure that you won't want to miss it!!!
