Postojna Vivarium on 19Sep2018 Day 5 3pax Family Holiday in Slovenia 15-21Sep2018

postojna vivarium – ohm

it took us another like 2hrs car journey from tolmin gorge to arrive at postojna caves about 2.50pm on 19.9.018. ^^

we bought the tickets that included a visit to the vivarium.

the next main postojna cave with english guide starts 3.30pm so we were advised to visit the vivarium first before queueing up for the 3.30pm guided tour.

the ohm is a creature of the dark.

It feeds on crustaceans, worms, snails and other aquatic invertebrates,  has a lifespan of up to one hundred years and can go without food for several years.

In 2016, one of Postojna Cave’s olms laid eggs, which hatched some time later, capturing the attention of people all around the world.

fascinating what creatures & microbes live in caves and mostly darkness.

it was fun, though we did not read up much about this and so did not know much or what to look. lol! 🙂
