The Billabong Paludarium

By Leonard Ho - Posted Jul 24, 2015 09:00 AM
Billabong isn't just a surfer clothing brand. Billabongs are isolated ponds left behind after rivers change course or stop flowing. Ian Cook's paludarium (part aquarium, part terrarium) replicates a lush tropical billabong to perfection.

I've always been fascinated by paludariums.  The boundary between water and land is where we find some of the most dynamic, interesting ecosystems in the world.  Ian Cook's Billabong Paludarium masterfully conveys the wild, raw magic that I adore.   Bravo!
