Fun at the Mote Marine Aquarium

10 02 2010

At the Mote Aquarium, my friend Cam purchased a bucket of sand for $6 and the kids got to mine through it for shark’s teeth over a trough with running water. They had a blast finding various types of shark teeth and fossilized stingray tails. We all got a chance to touch several types of stingrays (a first for me!). Over at the laboratory, we watched two resident dolphins do tricks with their trainers and met Harry and Buffet, the manatees. There are several sea turtles at the laboratory, too.
