Hello from The Florida Aquarium !
Our Cub Scout Pack recently had an educational sleepover at The Florida Aquarium.
30 of our 46 boys attended this one night camp.
We didn't spend the night having staring contests with fish, I promise.
The fish won, by the way.
Our scouts, siblings, and parents were treated to a behind the scenes tour of the aquarium. We visited the animals kitchen, played Shark Jeopardy, had a touching experience (literally) with stingrays, sea anemones, and baby sharks, plus we had an awesome dive show.
Do you know the rhyme
"Red against yellow, kill a fellow" or "Red against black, Ok Jack" ?
I had never heard of these, but it's good to know.
|These mice are not only food for snakes, but some birds at the aquarium.|
Not pictured, the rabbits. You're welcome.
All of the scouts and siblings were mesmerized by the jellyfish. They are so graceful, but get stung by one and there are plenty of other words to describe them.
Christopher was enamored with the Puffer Fish. They were in several different areas and he would stop and stare at them.
I think he was hoping they would get mad and puff up, but they never did.
