I took this image at the Maritime Aquarium in San Francisco. Since Finding Nemo I really like Clownfish but I guess everybody does haha. It’s an adorable movie. The weekly Challenge is Color so i thought a bright orange fish does match that theme pretty well 🙂
I went again to the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk yesterday to look at this very rare white alligator. I was very impressed by it’s beauty.
Of some 5 million or so American alligators thought to be alive, fewer than 100 are white, according to the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, which owns this “great white of the wetlands.”
The 8-foot American alligator is an albino animal. Albino animals (and people) lack the pigment, called melanin, that normally gives color to the skin, hair and eyes. Aside from being white with pink eyes, the alligator looks, swims and eats like a regular ’gator.
I went to the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk the other day with my two Hostkids. We had such a great time and the tanks are so beautiful!
I couldn’t resist the urge to take pictures so I brought my camera with me and these are some of my favorites from that day. And yes they do have meerkats at the Aquarium 🙂
I think I have at least 400 pictures of Jellyfish now. Different kinds, different light. They are just such amazing creatures and so calming.
They even have a whole section for amphibians and a shark tank. It’s an amazing place to go on a rainy or snowy afternoon.
