Thomas and Nicholas's favorite part of the aquarium, I think, was the sharks. They were able to touch a real shark's jaw and see the rows and rows of teeth waiting to replace a lost one.
It just gives me the shudders to look at this shark! He is so vicious looking!
These are little baby shark eggs. We could actually see them wiggling around inside.
Enormous ray of some kind.
I love Thomas's expression here. I had just finished reading to him about the little garden worm fish (not the technical name) and how they stretch out of their little underground homes and hold their mouths open trying to catch tiny creatures to eat. I think he is unconsciously mimicking them.
Here is a picture of them...the little garden worm fish. They were one of my favorite.
I don't remember the name of this creature, but they got to get really close to it and ask all sorts of questions about it. They didn't get to touch it, because the vet said it was feeling a bit tempermantal that day. I wasn't going to argue with that.
