I would like to be able to go here and take some night shots of Philly from across the water. Too bad Camden is not a place you want to hang out after dark. Apparently someone took my photo while I was taking photos...
I was not aware that was happening. The only problem with this photo is that you can't see my awesome killer bunny/Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch shirt.
After I wasted time taking photos of Philly, it was time to actually go in the aquarium. It was smaller than I thought it would be, but it had some neat things. I liked the hammerhead sharks. There was also a walkway in a tube running through one of the tanks which held the majority of the sharks at the aquarium. When you were in the tube, if felt like you could reach out and touch the sharks. They could swim over your head or come right up to you. It was a little creepy at times. I kept imagining what it would be like to run into one of these sharks in the ocean.
There were plenty of exhibits with colorful fish and seahorses and all the stuff you'd expect in an aquarium. There was also an area with two hippos in it. I felt kind of bad for them because they didn't have much room. The sea lions didn't have much room, either.
The main attraction for me in going to the NJ Aquarium was the penguins. What I mean to say is, PENGUINS!!
