Preschool Corner–At the Aquarium

Last week while we were at the beach we visited the Ripley’s Aquarium (Myrtle Beach) and had a blast!  Sammy loves all animals so this was a huge hit for him. 

Posing at the opening tank:

Tim and Sammy “in” the shark exhibit:

Sammy checking out how the hammer head shark sees things around him:

Sammy thought this was hilarious.  If a shark eats something it doesn’t like its stomach does this:

The shark exhibit was really neat since they had lots of different sharks in there.  They also had some shark eggs at different stages of incubation.  That part was really neat to me.  You would see the babies squirming around in the eggs (they had a light behind them).
