Following is a collection of pictures with strange sea creatures from the splendid Aquarium which is part of the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco.
The museum was built 100 years ago by the founder of modern Monaco, Prince Albert I, who was quite the sailor. He mapped significant portions of the ocean floor and chose to spend a large part of World War I in his laboratory yacht in Monaco harbour.
Although many of the exhibits haven't changed in decades, in 2001 the museum inaugurated a brand new shark tank which forms a centre piece for the aquariums. Despite the name, don't expect to see dozens of hungry sharks swimming around. There are a just a few - asleep mostly - on the floor of the tank. The spectacle is nevertheless fascinating. The stars of the show are the myriad other colourful and strangely shaped fish swimming around. The tank is arranged so that you can see small reef dwellers from one side as you come in and larger shoals from the other deeper side once further inside the museum. Also, there are many other small tanks with a variety of sea creatures.
