More from MOTE Aquarium

It’s not often you get this close to a shark.  Above are some of the bigger things under water at MOTE Aquarium in Sarasota.

The Aquarium rehabilitates and houses permanently injured turtles, manatees and dolphins. The turtle above was missing an eye.

We don’t have crocodiles in the Tampa Bay area, at least not yet. They can be found in areas much farther south including the Everglades. I’ve never seen one out in wild. They look very comical, almost like a cartoon.

Pretty flowers in the water at aquarium.

I caught the baby elephants hanging out by the water hole with one of the adults.  The adult pushed the baby out of the way so she could get a drink of water.

It’s rare to see a giraffe sitting down.

He’s suppose to be scary but looks like he’s giving me a silly grin.

Just a few fun things at the Lowry Park zoo recently.
