Funny Things to Share

My son is 4 years old and he just loves all animals, reptiles, and of course dinosaurs. I don't know how many of you have seen Disney's "The Dinosaur", but when the T-Rex dies my son gets upset. He likes the predators in all species. His favorites are sharks, snakes, crocodiles, alligators, T-Rex and raptors. Oh and lobsters. =)  Well at least this year they are. LOL He watches this show on animal planet called "River Monsters" it's pretty good but not so much my thing.

So I took him to the Aquarium here in Denver, CO and he had so much fun. Here are a few of the pictures I took while we were there.

 Lobster on the left.

Unicorn fish on the right.


Piranha's  above.                                                                                          Blow fish above.


 Seahorse above.

Star Fish (left) 

The fish that said I'm obnoxious  from "Finding Nemo." (right)                                                                                                                  

 Where's Nemo? His dad and Dori are here. LOL

These guys on the left are related to sting rays but the look like.    

This is a cool looking sting ray on the right.

This sting ray is huge and they look like their smiling.

I can't remember the specific name of these Jelly Fish.( Left) 

 This sea turtle started swimming right after this picture was taken. (right)

 This looks like it has a saw for a nose. (left)                          

A Sand-tiger shark but it's more like a sting ray. (right)

This guy was interested in me for some reason. He came up to me and just stayed there for a while. I felt like his lunch after a few minutes. It was kind of uncomfortable but mostly because everyone there kept saying, "look at the way the shark is just staring at her." Well, he eventually moved on but I'll never forget it.

They have a fish there that will swim up to the scuba divers (you can swim with the fish and sharks there you just sign up) and eats the bubbles from the oxygen tanks. Now this fish is as big as a woman about 5 feet tall give or take and is as round as a boulder. It was fun to see this but I did not get a picture of this big fish, sorry. I might be a little off of the size of the fish but it was enormous.

 Also they have two Tigers but they were sleeping where we could not see them at the time we were there.

If your ever in the area you should definitely check out the Aquarium. Hope you enjoy these photos. =)

Nice pictures. There's a wonderful aquarium in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, but it was built years after we moved away. Now, Atlanta has one, too, and it's supposed to be the largest in the world, but we still haven't visited it. (The crowds are still too large.) As for your son, it sounds like he loves the kind of animals almost every boy loves. Wait until you get to enjoy some of those critters as pets!
