    I'm not opposed to aquariums in general, but I don't think it is a good idea to keep whales or whale sharks in captivity. Whale sharks especially are just too damned big and their natural behavior is completely different from what an aquarium will allow them.

    I have been to the aquarium it is a nasty place. It is dirty crowded and it smells. I hated it there. I can't beleive any fish in there are alive with trash being littered everywhere and it's just disgusting.
     
  4. The article doesn't specifically state that the whale sharks were, but most whales in captivity are rescued from other facilities or in the wild.

    If the animals are given sufficient space to promote their natural behaviour, captivity has its place as a vehicle to promote awareness and conservation.

    Where I get my back up is if I see a zoo or an aquarium that does not allow the animals to interact with each other, in a habitat size space AND/OR allows the public to interact in an unnatural way.
     
  5. If this is indeed the case, we are once again failing the animal kingdom. Surprise surprise :roll: :evil:

    What aquarium Drew? The aquariums in Omaha and Chicago are beautiful, clean and the animals appear to be thriving.

    A necropsy? Does autopsy only apply to certain species (or just humans even)? What about postmortem?

    Wait, I just read this...
    Well, I'm pretty sure I can tell them the cause of death.

    I have been there twice, and don't recall trash or nasty smells(aside from fish smelling nasty by nature). Maybe the trash and smell was from those damn teenagers. :D

    Autopsy is specific to humans, necropsy when referring to any other animal. Post-mortem is a general term referring to anything that happens to a body after death, human or animal. It may be an autopsy or necropsy, it could also be mutilation, i.e., "The body was mutilated post-mortem.".
