Dallas World Aquarium

Piper's Girl Scout Troop took at trip the last week of July. The first place we went was the Dallas World Aquarium. If you have never been, you should go if you get the opportunity!

If you have never seen a sloth in real life, they truly do move as sloooooooooowwww as they are shown to move on tv! This is the female sloth they have there. An employee brought her out and stood by the tree. The sloth moved as slow as possible and reached for the branch and climbed on. It was really cool to see! 
Piper with Sea Turtles swimming behind her...
It's a manatee! Reminds me of "I'm a Manatee" by John Lithgow.
Little worms in the sea...they were actually kind of cute. They were marked like a clown fish...orange with white and black stripes.
Penguins...
In the Dallas World Aquarium, there is a tunnel that you can walk through and you are under the sea...sharks and stingray swim above you...this is a sawfish. It was cool to watch it eat. It actually used its saw to "saw" the food and then eat it!
Shark!!! Piper's expression in the glass is funny! Her expression is like "whoa!"
More sharks swimming...Piper is looking through the glass.
Little sea horses...they were cute!
Have you ever seen a sea horse swim?

Flamingos...
 In the gift shop, there were octopus fingers....
 Jaguar sleeping...
This man was planting some new plants in the water. Do you see what is down below him? An alligator. We told him we'd be back to check on him after the shark feeding...
I didn't actually catch any sharks on video eating, but I did see them eat. It is still neat to see them swim above you.

We did go back to check on the man...he was gone, red bucket and all! Notice the alligator was still there...
So, if you do make it to the Dallas World Aquarium, don't volunteer to plant any plants near the alligator!
