MPBSFA Day 4: Monterey Bay Fish Bowl (Part I)

Day 4 saw MonkeyPig and Nonny Nu journeying to Monterey Bay Aquarium. But, our first stop (of course) is to procure some food for the journey. We went to a local sammich shop and picked up $23 worth of sammiches and goodies.

Then, we were off. Along the way, MonkeyPig read out loud from the latest Harry Potter book. As usual, it was more fun than a person could stand. Now, you can either google "Monterey Bay Aquarium" and see all of the professional-grade photos, but then you wouldn't be able to see these gems taken by yours truly.


These were the main attraction at the zoo so, naturally, the viewing area was super crowded. And, there were so many kids!! They were mostly annoying. I don't see why kids get dibs on the front row spaces. I paid more than they did to get in. Shouldn't I get the front row space?? This doesn't make sense at all.

A TWoNN first: Here are some videos! Can you guys believe I took these videos with my $99 hand-me-down camera?? (Beware: There's sound on these due to the annoying kids.)

Feeding time:



These anchovies were in a cylindrical tank and the only thing they do all day long is swim around, around, and around.

Here they are in motion:

Sun Fish
There was a deep "outer bay" tank with many fish, including huge tuna. But, the weirdest fish in the tank were two sun fish.


Okay, chickadees, it's time for chores and then bed. As Bart Simpson says, "Go to bread!"

I'm always amazed at the array of colors that nature provides as evidenced by your coral pix. Truly beautiful.

Nonny Nu said...

Agreed! Part two will feature jelly fish. I liked them the best.

And, strangely, they are neither fish nor made of jelly!
