The Two Oceans Aquarium in pictures

The aptly named Two Oceans Aquarium displays the unique and diverse marine life that can be found in the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, which both crash against South African shores.

The aquarium is one of the finest in the world and houses over 3 000 living creatures, including penguins, turtles, sharks, and marine and freshwater fish.

Take a walk through the aquarium and find yourself face-to-face with translucent jellyfish, ragged-tooth sharks and giant spider crabs, among many other denizens of the deep – such as those in the gallery of images below.
