Did you know that Green Sea Turtles are one of the sea's most ancient creatures? We learned that yesterday at our visit to the SEA LIFE Aquarium in Grapevine, TX. Brody was amazed at it all. We actually went around twice as he wasn't done at the end. He was super amazed at all the fish!
SEA LIFE AQUARIUM IN GRAPEVINE
Over 5,000 amazing creatures!!
It was TURTLE RESCUE month and the exhibits were impeccable!!
Explore an amazing underwater world. Journey through 16 themed zones and don't miss the ocean tunnel - that's the coolest part. At first Brody and I were apprehensive to walk across the shark-infested waters, but hubby thought we were acting life babies so we stopped and walked across - hehehe...all in fun! They have a new state-of-the-art Shark Mission which is a must see.
We saw mysterious jellyfish, stingrays and of course sea turtles that have been rescued. The seahorses are the most cutest creature I've ever seen. If you and your kids like Nemo, you're in luck - there are bunches of them. Did you know Nemos are tiny?
GET HANDS-ON EDUCATION ABOUT SEA STAR AND HERMIT CRABS. Brody was a little scared at first, but this nice lady coaxed him into touching the crab very gentle.
I told my husband that I captured the perfect word for Brody....can you see it?? Yep, he's our squirt!
This was too cool. Brody didn't think so as much as I did.
We had a great time and enjoyed the sea turtles the best. It's nice to know that they have a place to go and feel wanted and to be fed. There's a kid's play area there, fun talks, quiz trail and more. Get your picture taken and have them print it out at the end of your visit. You'll go at your own pace with this un-guided tour around Sea life!!
