Sea Life Minnesota


Welcome to Sea Life Minnesota at Mall of America

Once you head down the escalators you end up here.

The first exhibit is a large ray pool

Lots of different species of rays in this pool

You are only allowed to look though.  No touching

You CAN however touch starfish in this pool

These are straw fish.  I can't remember what the scientific name is

Moon jelly fish

More moon jelly fish

Man-O-Wars

New sea horse exhibit

I love how they hold onto things with their tails

We found Dory.  (Blue Tangs)

More of the coral reef exhibit

This guy was cleaning everything

NEMO!  (clown fish)

Sea turtle

The ocean tunnel is the best part of this aquarium

Derrijk and Jesse checking out the different aquatic creatures

Sawtooth shark

Lots of tiger and black tip sharks

Some of the sharks were pretty good sized

These sharks are so much fun to watch swim

Big schools of fish

There were two schools in this tank

I love this place
