Rescued and returned turtles get new sensors


Brent is enamored with turtles, turtles of all kinds but ocean turtles more specifically. So, we sought after then arranged a "behind the scenes" excursion for us at 1:00 p.m. We and 7 other people got to go behind the doors and above the water to see how the aquarists take care of the small group of large sea turtles on property! Photos were not allowed behind the scenes, so you'll have to guess how cool it is. But, we have plenty other photos. For about 45 minutes to 1 hour we got first hand view and personal instruction. The cost is definitely worth it. This aquarium is pretty awesome.
