We had an excellent visit at the aquarium. The highlights were the seahorses, which are fascinating. They do hypnotic mating dances, and strangely, the male of the species carries the offspring and gives birth. This is the only species in the world that does this. We also saw many kinds of sharks, several stingrays, an albatross, and over a dozen kinds of jellyfish, some of which are illuminated with neon lighting. Very cool!
