Stingrays and Fishies and Tigers! Oh My!

Next we went inside to the stingray pool.  Stella was a little nervous about petting the stingrays...


Savanah said they felt slimy...

The young lady working the exhibit answered several questions for the girls...

Watts wanted a turn but we told him he was too little.  This was his response...
Eventually his attitude improved...
These were the most aggressive stingrays I have ever seen.  They were literally trying to jump out of the tank to get to you...

Next we checked out the big exhibit...


The girls had a great time looking for the different animals.  They even found Nemo!



The girls were fascinated by the shark tracker exhibit.  When you selected a shark you could actually see the path that the shark had been swimming.  It was a little scary to see how close they were to the beach...

Watts tried his hand at shark tracking, too...
The white tigers were amazing...


Even the tiger smiled for the picture!

There was a pretend tiger at the end of the exhibit for a photo op, too...
