Museo Ictícola del Beni - Museum Trinidad - Bolivia

One of South America’s most important aquatic life museums can be found on the outskirts of Trinidad, at the Museo Ictícola del Beni. Based on the grounds of the Universidad Técnica del Beni, the museum displays over 400 different fish species in glass tanks and metal mounts. Exhibits include pink river dolphins, giant catfish, electric eels, piranhas and rays. Some of the more unusual examples include the 110 kilogram piraíba, and the tachacá with its large flat scales. All of the fish specimens come from the rivers around Trinidad.
