In the end, it was cute, playful, darty sea otters that melted the polar ice cap of my heart so fast that Al Gore didn't have time to make documentary about it. And my awesome husband bought his 30-something year old wife a stuffed otter to commemorate the trip. Genghis has already beaten up Otter a little, but he's none the worse for wear. We plan on going back soon. It was great!!
Here are some highlights:
This was a tiny "comb jelly fish" that is "bioluminescent" and I never would've seen it without Chef calling me over to the tiny little exhibit. These things were about the size of a dime. And totally awesome.
|Chef leans in to pet the sting ray. That thing was HUGE.|
|One of my Otters cheesing for the camera.|
|There were three high school kids that screamed "Look it's Dory and Nemo together!!" about 10 times. It made me sad for the future.|
|Chef feeding a Lorakeet. Which was also awesome.|
|Because I'm sadistic, I felt the need to eat some seafood after our day at the aquarium. This was a bowl of delicious coconut snails. Awesome!|
