Saturday we went to the Newport Aquarium in Northern Kentucky.
The day was warm for early February.I have a thing for turtles. I mean, I don't actually want to touch one, feed one, water one, or live with one, but I kind of like them. In a zoo.How about this mammer jammer? A dear family with a teenage Down's Syndrome son was splitting a gut over this lovable face. It is a turtle. Of some kind. Which I can't be bothered looking up.
The fish tunnels were pretty okay. I'd like them better if they had conveyor belts to stand on like AQWA did but that's just because I'm lazy and also it reminded me of the Jetsons, which is always cool. The piranhas just sat, almost motionless, waiting for some hapless prey to climb in. I can see that, if you were to try to cross an infested river, you would have a really hard time seeing these critters, since they don't move.Love, love, love the jelly fish. I can't believe I didn't get a shot of the jellyfish couch in the jellyfish room.Not quite as big as a hammerhead, but getting there.
Totally unrelated photo.
Guess the conversation that happened right before this photo was taken:
(Mamma:) Jr, don't wake the Baby.
(Jr:) mumble mumble.
(Mamma:) Jr, don't go upstairs, you'll wake the Baby.
(Jr:) mumble mumble mumble.
(Mamma:) Jr, I said DON'T GO UPSTAIRS, YOU'LL WAKE THE BABY
(Jr:) giggle giggle giggle, sproing sproing sproing
(Baby:) giggle giggle giggle, sproing sproing sproing
