Exhibition of Bizarre Creatures to be Held at Sunshine Aquarium in 2019

15.December.2018 | SPOT

Sunshine Aquarium in Ikebukuro, Tokyo is set to host its third Hen na Ikimono Ten (‘Exhibition of Strange Living Creatures’) from March 30 to early July next year in collaboration with Ikuo Hayakawa, author of the best-selling book Hen na Ikimono. The first and second exhibitions brought in close to 200,000 people.

 

The exhibition will feature a line-up of odd-looking animals with detailed audio commentaries from Ikuo Hayakawa himself to create an experience that will feel like you are immersed in the book.

Some of the creatures on display include the Peters’ elephantnose fish which has a chin like that of an elephant’s trunk, the Armadillo girdled lizard which puts its tail in its mouth and rolls up into a ball when it feels threatened, and the spindly, spider-like arrow crab. More creatures are scheduled to be announced in the near future.

If you’re a fan of weird and wacky wildlife then don’t miss out on this special exhibition.
