these 2 were not behind any glass or nets....yikes! they definitely made my heart beat fast, but i was able to take their picture from a distance...hence the picture.
thad was afraid to touch the sting rays...
so, i had to show him how it was done.
according to thad, this is a pitcher plant...which is a carnivorous plant.
i was trying to take a picture of this penguin but the stupid staff squirted water right in the way. thanks a lot heifers.
notice the big pole that one of the divers is holding....that's to ward of sharks. why would you want to hang out in a tank with sharks with only a pvc pipe thing to save you?
i don't really remember what this is called, but it looked neat.
the sleeping turtle
this was in the seahorse exhibit. i thought the coral was pretty.
i think this is some sort of dragon fish but am probably wrong.
he actually touched the sturgeon on the first try.
we were impressed by how they set up one of the freshwater exhibits...complete with a boat, paddle, pier, and minnow bucket.
the trip's not complete without a trip to ben & jerry's.
