Brady and I went to the free day at the California Academy of Sciences. It is such an amazing place. They have a new aquarium with over 50,000 gallons of water, a four-story encased rainforest, african penguins, a swap, and so much more!
(LOTS of pictures to follow)
The Stingray pool
I love giraffes!
Brady by the fully encased four-story rainforest
Steinhart Aquarium is full of the most interesting creatures!
Jelly fish are BEAUTIFUL
They blend in with the sandy seafloor to hind from predators
These little guys are Waxy Monkey Tree Frogs
They grab branches and swing through trees like monkeys
These eels reminded me of Flotsam and Jetsam in the Little Mermaid
This little fish looks more like a dinosaur to me
I think sea horses are fascinating
There are so many crazy things under the sea!
These funny little things are called Garden Eels
There aren't snakes, they're fish! They live in colonies and pop their bodies out when hungry
Leafy Sea Dragon
This is Claude
He is an albino alligator. He is blind and gets a sunburn when exposed to the sun.
After the aquarium we went into the Rainforest
The colorful Macaws
There is a whole wall in the rainforest of exotic orchids
Poison Dart Frog
Gecko & Brady
They hunt with their spring loaded tongues
The rainforest was filled with butterflies and beautiful flowers
After the Rainforest we walked over to the Natural History and had a visit with
Mr. Gopher Tortoise
And the African Penguins
