We had front row viewing to every exhibit. We sat in the tunnel admiring the whale sharks for at least 20 minutes and never inconvenienced a single person.
And we got to see the dolphins. The dolphin exhibit has finally opened and those creatures are just so much fun. Jack got to sit in front of the glass as they played for their admirers.
As a matter-of-fact, this was his face for most of the day:
Since we got to the aquarium at 10 we were able to see the whale sharks being fed. That was incredible. The two photos below try to capture the spectacle...
|Notice the raft to the side of the whale shark. That raft is connected to a wire above the tank that the care giver is connected to for safety. When they make the trek back to the side of the tank the whale sharks follow closely.|
The last three photos were some of Jackson's favorites.
The black light on these creatures allows you to see every tentacle.
And this fish is just so odd. Jackson kept saying "Face? Face?"
