This little tiger shark was a very fast swimmer and we had a difficult time touching him in the touch tank!

We loved touch the sea stars and the red shrimp. The tropical fish are so beautiful. My favorite is the little clown fish! You just can’t help but think of Nemo when you see them!

A sea cucumber! It looks like it would be hard and rough, but surprisingly it was soft and velvety to the touch!

Our very favorite part of the aquarium! The sting rays and manta rays! They were so fun to touch! The large manta rays would come up out of the tank to get your attention! You can see the ray in the bottom right picture was partially out of the tank! They were so much fun!

The Philadelphia Skyline taken though a small scratched out area that Justin found at one of the windows that had been blacked out!

The hippopotamus exhibit! These two were so active while we were there. That should be Justin on top of that hippo above as his favorite Christmas song is I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas!
