Several of the pics are unfortunately blurry because those darn animals just wouldn't stop moving to pose for me! But I hope you like them anyway. There are a lot, so I'll put them after the jump...
The first exhibit we visited was the shark and ray touch tank. Sting rays are very slimy!
Here you can see a shark and a ray snuggling together under a rock, while another swims by:
Meanwhile, this ray was doing his best to blend in:
My favorite exhibit was probably the jellyfish room. They are so alien-looking, it's hard to believe we're distantly related to them!
These guys reminded me of the underwater enemies from the old Mario Bros. games:
Piranha: a face only a mother could love. (I didn't see the second one lurking in the corner at first!)
The tail end of an electric eel. The display made a noise every time the eel gave off an electrical impulse, which was pretty neat!
A gang of seahorses. The one in front seems to be examining those little crabs:
A cute little starfish:
One of the exhibits is a giant cylindrical tank that you can view from all angles and heights. I got a great pic of this giant sea turtle's shell:
This sea lion was just relaxing by the pool (and someone's glasses!):
Meanwhile, these ones were having a good time in the water:
Penguin feeding time!
And a tiny little cuttlefish looking very chill:
Finally, some of the beautiful coral, anemones, and various other lifeforms:
Like I said, if you find yourself in Boston with some spare time, definitely consider going to the New England Aquarium! They have an IMAX theater and whale watching boats too!
