Aquarium Of The Pacific = Fishtastic

Aubrey and I got to be special guests at Aquarium Of The Pacific in Long Beach, CA this morning and it was a first visit for both of us. We had so much fun and I learned a lot of surprising things about the Aquarium!

We spent the morning looking at several of the over 11,000 species of marine life and animals there but our favorites we the creatures we got to touch with our own fingers, including jelly fish, mangrove rays and zebra, epaulette and bamboo sharks! Did you know those 4-5 visible rings in the bell of the jelly fish’s body are its stomach?! Cool, huh?

We also held an orka tooth and a dolphin jaw bone as well as peered though the teeth of a shark. And there is more to the Aquarium than just fish… we saw Arctic Fox pups in the Molina Animal Care Center and the Lorikeet Forest too. After catching the sea lion show, Aubrey cooled off in the Shark Lagoon area Squirting Squid play area and then back inside to check out giant lobsters, crabs, sea horses, star fish and tons and tons of fish!

My only complaint about the Aquarium Of The Pacific is that it isn’t closer to where we live. We only got to experience a small portion of what the Aquarium has to offer, so we’ll definitely be back for more visits in the future!
