I see the National Aquarium and head over.
More sting rays and black tipped sharks
Zoey the zebra shark.
Calypso the giant turtle and is only 25 years old. Seriously the picture doesn’t do it justice. It is HUGE.
I get on the escalator to the higher floors and I see the skeleton of fin whale. It spans the entire length of the building, YES the building.
I see a lot of smaller fish around, but I am more interested in seeing the bigger fish.
Long horned cow fish
Monkeys in the rain forest on the top floor.
And finally I descend down and see the giant shark tank. It is amazing.
After the shark tank I walk to the dolphins and jelly fish exhibits. The dolphins are definitely a treat
I went to the jellyfish exhibit next. Since I have seen a jellyfish exhibit before I wasn’t too moved by what they had but there were some interesting creatures to see.
Time was flying by. I could easily spend a lot of time at the Aquarium but I had to drive to Pittsburgh so I found the exit and made my way to Pittsburgh to hang out with Mike.
The National Aquarium is very pricey at a whopping $34.95 for an adult ticket, but the shark tank, large fish collection and the dolphin exhibit made it worth it for me.
Ticket cost: $34.95
Parking: $14.00 (for 3 hours, even though I clocked 2 hours and 1 min)
