I've been wanting to visit this place for a while. A friend of mine has been a few time with her grandkids and it sounded like such a neat place. An aquarium, museum, and zoo all in one...how can that not be great?
|This is a fishing cat, which I'd never heard of but they had video playing|
of it actually diving in the water after fish!
|This is where the fishing cat lives (there's another one asleep in there too)|
|There's an otter in there somewhere, I swear, or I wouldn't have taken the picture.|
There is a dome in the middle of the otter habitat and we quickly figured out what it was for.
I was not missing this opportunity! So we waited our turn, crawled through the tunnel, and when I stood up, I was face to face with an otter! Such a fun idea.
|It's for us to visit the otters!|
The penguins are right next to the otters and they're so fun to watch too.
|This one showed off a little for Grant. Grant walked along the glass|
and the penguin swam next to him kind of playing. It was so cute!
|I love this picture :)|
They have some big fish tanks with some interesting things too.
|Why do guys like snakes so much?|
I loved their sting ray petting area! I think it has such a fun look to it. I tried convincing Grant to pet one but he just wouldn't, even after I did. He kept telling us it would sting him.
|That dock isn't just for show, and employee comes out on the dock|
to tell about sting rays and how to pet them.
We eventually coaxed him away from the sharks toward the museum area of the place. This is where the dinosaur bones are (and some other things but the dinosaur bones were on the must-see list). I was a little disappointed in the museum part, it definitely wasn't as impressive as the rest of it but Grant still really loved it.
|Stegosaurus is one of Grant's favorite dinosaurs!|
(I had to crop out a guy that just would not get out of my shot)
|"Look! I'm like Thor!" Love the hand on the hip.|
|Having a great day :)|
|Tortoises (they were HUGE and so fun to watch)|
|Daddy & Grant pretending to be tortoises|
|And TIGERS! There were two and it was just about feeding time|
so they were pretty active and SO PRETTY!
|Wallabies! I was hoping they'd be more active but they're cute anyway.|
|They have these fun tunnels set up to watch the meerkats.|
