The Mystic Aquarium is located in Mystic, Connecticut. It does in fact have no mystical powers, unless you count the power of learning. Judy and I traveled there so I could check out some fish and see the historic town of Mystic.
Like usual, I tried to get Judy involved with the sea life. She gave the passing rays a couple of pets. They were quite friendly.
Then again, everyone loves clown fish. I wish I had this tank at home. The cats would probably spend all day watching them. I counted four species in the tank… can you find any more?
Their sea horse tank was very cute as well. Those little guys.
The aquarium had a nice collection of marine mammals, most of which were rescued. The sea lions were quite playful and nothing is more fun than watching them eat and play.
We got a special treat right before closing, the feeding of the beluga whales! Its one part feeding, one part training, and one part whale play time. You should most certainly watch the last couple minutes the the video below. It’s very interesting. Plus the beluga whales are in fact the cutest of the whale species.
Aaaannnnnnddddd a video to watch. Seriously, watch the last couple minutes.
