Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium didn't always have that last part as part of it's name. It's true we don't have a big aquarium like the one I went to in Chicago. The aquarium that is attached to Omaha's zoo is amazing. If you visit, don't ignore it. It's not a separate fee to get in.
When you walk in there's a welcoming gigantic blue tank.
The tank is filled with mostly these fish. I'll admit it, I didn't write all their names down. My family was already being very patient with me, so I could take pictures. Lots of pictures.
The bottom of the tank is filled with what looks like silver glitter. I know it's not that, but that's what it looks like.
Then we saw my favorite, the puffins and penguins. The penguins were being fed, so they were extra active.
Waiting for food.
Swimming for food, or just for fun!
Quiet time for this one:
They have a glass bubble kids can go in to see them swimming. You really feel like you're part of the penguin family when you're in the "bubble". Mica stayed there for awhile. He loves the penguins. Mica told me a joke from one of his books, "I wish the Antarctic had tornadoes! Then penguins would be able to fly."
Travis was laughing at me because I asked if the white things on the sides of a Puffin's head is fur, hair, or feathers? I know it's feathers, but it looks like hair.
More than the sharks, eels creep me out.
These little eel like things stuck up out of the sea floor. Weird!
This one looks like it's say, "Hello!".
There's a gigantic glass arch tank that you can walk under and through. It consists of sharks, stingrays, sea turtles and more.
He or she is waving at you.
The jellyfish remind me of lava lamps. I love taking photos of them!
I'm not sure Omaha needs an aquarium. The zoo has a big enough one to get a taste of aquatic plants and animals.
