Let me start by saying that my son LOVES this place. He wants to bring the otter home because it makes snow balls. We have this idea of marketing an otter who makes snowcones to sell in the neighborhood. We just have to convince Chuy to put a pool in the back for the otter to live in.
Back to Aquarium of the Pacific. Everyone knows about the sea life and the sea creatures. Here are 4 things you may not have known that we discovered on this trip:
1. We met Sitka, a 3 year old Arctic Fox. We wondered if he missed the snow or was he happy to be soaking up the sun in Long Beach. Either way, he is adorable and he is located by the Lorikeet Forest.
2. Bring paper and crayons (if not, they will provide for you). I never paid attention to the tiles on the floor that display various sea creatures. You can take home your favorite images by placing a piece of paper and rubbing with a crayon. Voila! Image of the Pacific Spiny Lumpsucker to go!
4. Every now and then if you look carefully, you will spot the homosapien in the tank! This was the sea creature that excited the kids the most.
