We all know that aquariums come in a multitude of shapes and sizes, but chances are you’ve never seen a fish home that looks quite like this. Jason Decaires Taylor, an underwater sculptor working with the Museo Subacuatico de Arte in Cancun, created a group of suburban-style homes for all sorts of aquatic animals. With help from marine biologists, Taylor designed the homes so that they make ideal habitats for various invertebrates and fish. For example, the roof, which is textured, allows for coral settlement, while the first floor is level and meant to house crustaceans.
If you’re visiting Cancun, be sure bring your scuba gear and visit this one-of-a-kind attraction.
