Right, first things first, I had to see the tyrannosaurus skeleton that I remembered seeing as a child. For some reason, I thought it would be bigger... Hmm, time scales everything I suppose
Wait, did that thing just make a move toward me?? Aaaahhhhhh!
Sophia got some good photos from the rainforest exhibit.
Next, the alligators, and this fine albino specimen.
You can just see a normal colored one in the upper left corner hanging out on a log.
From a different angle.
This guy didn't move at all while we were looking at him.
Me trying to get a photo with my phone.
Next, it was the African dioramas, the only feature that survived with no changes from the old museum.
Sophia with a couple of Dic Dics
A cheetah hiding in the trees waiting to pounce down on unsuspecting visitors
The mighty African Gorilla, impressive.
The Pendulum, another of the exhibits I remember from my childhood, it has been updated with an electromagnet apparently.
Some cool stuff from the Galapagos display area
A cool bronze sculpture of a Galapagos tortise
Which of course means that Sophia and I have to pose with it.
And I am standing next to this random column for some reason...
These are little eels that poke their head out from the sand to grab morsels as they float by.
Sophia got in line for the rainforest exhibit while I was still down in the aquarium. I was supposed to come up and go in with her, but I got distracted by all the fish.
