This short video of the world’s second largest aquarium in the world — Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium in Japan (the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta is the record holder, for now, until this beast in Dubai opens next year) — is strangely hypnotic given that it’s a single-shot of a bunch of marine life swimming by at a snail’s pace. What’s amazing is that as you watch, you slowly realize how truly amazing the world’s water ec0-system is and it’s place in this world.
Highlight: Check out the scuba diver hop out of the way of the massive whale shark at 3:15. I don’t blame him.
