Come! See little Magnus Cousteau as he shows us the world of the sea:
Here at the Oregon Coast Aquarium we had lots of fun. My friend Brian came with us and shared in our adventure. Magnus really likes to look at our fish at home, so it seemed like a good place to go. He really enjoyed the touch pool, filled with abalone, anemones, urchins, cucumber and more. He would giggle at the squishiness of many of the creatures.
Here he is with some giant Japanese spider crabs that are as big as he is:
Looking at all the wonderful fish:
Here is Brian hanging out with some puffins (one of Ruth’s favorites):
We like this jellyfish that looks like a fancy lamp:
Some random creatures for your enjoyment. Can you find the two fish?
One of the big attractions at this aquarium is the giant shark tank that has a tunnel going through it. It is really cool to see the sharks and other fish swim above, below, and next to you.
Magnus Cousteau even let us go swimming for awhile, though he went and got himself eaten by a giant seahorse:
We all loved seeing the strange and interesting underwater animals…
but there were also lots of sea mammals like seals, sea lions, and otters to enjoy. And that is where we will leave you.
