And it didn’t bite me, giant bonus!
We went to the Newport Aquarium this afternoon and I highly recommend it. It seems a little expensive (18.00 USD), but for those who like the river and ocean wildlife, GOOD STUFF. They have the aquariums broken down by river systems in the world (Nile, Amazon, Mississippi, etc). Cool facts about all the fish, turtles, snakes, etc. they have in residence. And, of course, you finish off with the giant salt-water aquariums. They are featuring a show with Sweatpea, the ray shark. A cool creature if ever there was one.
There are also two petting areas: small sharks, a ray, sea stars, crabs, and more. Really cool. There were some small kids there that couldn’t stop saying, “Lookee, look! Look! Look here!”
Also some penguins, parrots and a Kookaburra. I’d never seen a kookaburra before (only learning the song when I was a kid).
If you’d like to attend, it’s located in an area called the Levee, in Newport, KY (just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati).
