This is a real good one. Public african themed aquarium with Giant Delhezi displayed at a Dubai shopping mall. Looks to be an endli mixed in there too (on the rock cliff)

Love this one. Like how that endli is chilling up on the rock cliffs. We don’t see too many poly environments that have vertical resting places, so I particularly enjoyed this one. And that giant delhezi is beautiful!
