loveland aquarium

The new aquarium in Draper is open and I have wanted to go for such a long time so Nik decided to take me.  Let me just say that the aquarium is pretty sweet!  When you walk in there are four different sections.  There is ocean, Utah, South America, and Antarctica.  We went to the ocean first and Nik got to touch a starfish!

 They have tons of different kinds of fish.  One of my favorite sections was the coral reef exhibit.  The fish were so bright and colorful.  It was so interesting to see them so close.  We saw seahorses, eels, and many different types of fish.

They had a little pool where you could touch some sting ray.  Nik was brave and touched them a few times.  I got really close to touching one but then at the last second I got too scared.  They look really scary when they are so close to you and start swimming at you super fast.

One of my favorite things at the aquarium was the tunnel.  You walk down under a huge fish tank with sharks and all sorts of animals swimming in there.  It was so cool to see sharks and all sorts of fish swimming above you!  It is definitely a must see.

We ended up going to all the different sections of the aquarium and they are all pretty cool.  I would say the ocean was my favorite though.  The jelly fish were way cool too.  I have never seen a live jelly fish before and they had color changing lights on them that made them look awesome.

The penguins were really fun to watch too.  They swim so fast and right up next to the glass.  It was so interesting to see all of these animals!  Since the aquarium just opened and they didn't have all the animals yet so we get to go back again for free!  I can't wait to go back and see what other cool animals they have!
