Here's a version of the Virgin Sturgeon for your virgin ears.
Unsurprisingly, he had never heard the tune. I have to admit that he was very patient in listening to my unending witticisms throughout the day and to his credit, he added a few to the narrative too.
First on the agenda for the day was a pair of sleepy Fennec Foxes.
We went back three hours later and one was still sleepy (dead?) though the other was a tad livelier.
At the gift shop...
Dan (the man), who tends to take his photos with more patience than I, snapped this one.
You oughtta see the otters!
You really ought to cuz they were tough to spot.
Enough with the mammals (for now), let's move on to some denizens of the deep.
A hagfish and a bunch of fossils.
It's a gar, by gar.
It's tough to see but it's my favourite amphibian, the Oosanshouou or giant salamander though this one wasn't very gigantic.
Back to see a few mammals, Steller sea lions and Larga seals.
I missed out on the really big seal who occasionally let out a roar.
Puffins and a Murre (That's a murre! Dan made a funny.)
Cap'n, there be whales!
Anguilla Japonica. Are you feeling eel?
Slightly more tropical...
I'm going out on a reef here.
Can you figure out what they're trying to spell?
I'm going to go to bed and continue the Marine-ating tomorrow.
