My Trip To The Tampa Aquarium
Today I'm going to tell you about my trip to the Tampa Aquarium.My trip to the Tampa Aquarium was one to remember.It was a long ride from our house to Tampa but it was 100% worth it! When we got there the first thing I saw was a big tank of Stingrays!We were able to pet them because they were tamed.They had no barbs,or stingers,on there tail.They felt slimy.The stingrays were the size of a small plate to the size of a German Shephard!We moved higher up into the Aquarium and we saw something unexpected.We saw animals that weren't fish!We saw alligators,crocodiles,partriges,owls,ducks,and a stange bird that I took a picture of (see top.)
After we went to look at those creatures we went into the best part of the Aquarium.I saw soooooooooo many fish!!! Even some that I did for Fishy Monday!Royal Grammas,Basslets,Butter Fly Fish,Sharks,Tangs,Damsel Fish,end a turtle or 2.My favorite fish was probably the Goliath Grouper.It was so big that it could fit 3 of me inside it! And I'm a big kid!Caitlin's favorite part was probably the sea horses.They had yellow seahorses,black seahorses,even little baby seahorses as big as a finger nail.My moms favorite part was probably the sea turtles.I don't know what was my dads favorite.The food there was good.I had grilled cheese,chips,spicy french fries,and a soda.After we saw all the tanks and exhibits we left for home.
That's what I did when I went to the Florida Aquarium.The End.
