World’s biggest live animal shows, with live animals from across the world – The Times of Malta
Malta, the island nation of 3.5 million people, has just over one-tenth the number of live animals that are recorded in the world.
The country has just 12 live animals and only a few of them are dolphins, turtles, birds and bats.
But with over 1,000 species of marine animals, it’s the country’s largest live animal exhibition in the history.
Malta has just one other animal exhibit in the entire world.
This year, The Times Malta is running a live animal show in the island’s historic Biscay Harbour.
In 2017, it held an event at the famous St Michael’s Church in Malta’s historic centre, where more than 500 dolphins were exhibited in a small terrace.
“We have an incredible number of species of animals that we can showcase and it’s a great place to do that,” said Biosignal CEO, Maria Pescu.
“The people in Malta are passionate about their environment and so are the visitors.
It’s an amazing feeling to see how the animals feel in such a small space.
It is a very intimate space.
The animals are very gentle and we don’t try to get into the animals too much.
This is an experience that the whole family can enjoy together.”
The dolphins were presented on a terrace in a large room.
The show lasted for nearly four hours.
“It’s really a beautiful, unique and special event,” Pescut said.
“There are no crowds of people and it is very peaceful.”
Live animals in Malta live in small enclosures in specially built terraces in the harbour.
The harbour is open to the public, but animals are only allowed on boats or on land.
“Animals are used in the marine environment for the protection of the environment and the animals themselves,” Piscu explained.
“When we put the box in the bay, we let them go in the water and they swim away.” “
Animals at the live animal events include seals, porpoises, sea lions, turtles and sharks. “

“They are just magnificent animals, and we have so many species of them,” Pascu said.
A dolphin is shown with his mouth open.
“I would never say I am a dolphin expert, but I am very familiar with all of them.”
“Dolphins have such a special relationship with humans, they go into a sea of love and it becomes this warm place to relax,” said Pascut.
“In the harbour, we have sea lions and dolphins and we are happy to have them.
“The animals are just lovely,” said Mariam Pescud, owner of the Dolphin Safari at St Michael’ Church. “
Our show is really a celebration of the sea and of our culture and the way we live our lives.”

It just adds to the joy of visiting Malta.” “
If you can come and see a dolphin, there is no better place than here.
It just adds to the joy of visiting Malta.”
Biosigningal has already sold the last of the live animals to the Malta Marine Mammal Centre.
“With the dolphins, we will sell the rest to the centre,” P Escud said.
