I left feeling utterly disgusted and saddened at what I had just seen. Upon entering you are greeted with a small ‘petting’ section where children are invited to prod at half dead rays and turtles. The tanks that followed were no better. They were filthy,...More

First we walked into a dark dingy room and went to the petting animals. All were limp and still. We then went to the tanks where the true horrors began. There was an octopus, in a far too small tank, which was unmoving but pulsating,...More
