While in Monterey California I had time to check out the Monterey aquarium and it was very impressive.

After our class long distance field trip to Mystic, CT  last month for their aquarium, I was glad to still be interested in the exhibits this time around. It’s safe to say the Monterey CA aquarium was much larger, with more to see and also more to do, but it was not better in every possible way.

It was very cool to be right on the water, and you could step outside onto the deck to check things out. Their were many huge tanks full of anything you could imagine, and countless smaller tanks with all the usual aquarium things, but also tons of unusual things. I saw many species I did not even know existed, like the strange seahorse pictured below.

Overall I am glad I spent the time at the aquarium. The only detail that could have made my visit better was if the  little kids weren’t sneaking around your legs to get to the front of the crowd.
