I could spend 6 of the 7 days of the week at an aquarium!
I have a deep need to connect with water creatures -- the habit is supported by two fish tanks at home. Not sure where the need came from, (and boats make me sea sick) but I don't argue... I just go with it!
We went to The Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, CT... and had a blast!
Not your typical aquarium exhibit.. but they had Meercats!! We quickly found out that early morning and mid-week.... all the animals were still so sleepy.
Imagine if you sleep like this. Bet you would need a good stretch after!
They had a whole room full of frogs. Big ones, little ones. The poisonous kind. The loud ones. Some that were brightly colored.
This guy stole the show for me!!
They have some gigantic tanks!
This one towered over my head and went all the way to the ground. As the sharks swam around it felt a bit like they would come right over and shake my hand. Errr... um... ask me what's for lunch!
I can never get enough jellyfish either. They had a dark room with a cylinder tank all light up which really made the jellyfish look like they were dancing!
I can't get over how delicate and detailed they are.
One of my other favorite are the clown fish. It was probably the movie "Finding Nemo" that ignited that love affair.
Bright and beautiful... I could watch these clowns all day too. Wonder how often they hear that!?!
I think all the bubbling water relaxes me! Tomorrow I will show you those silly harbor seals!!
