Understandably, Don was not allowed in the exotic bird/butterfly aviary, so Don and I walked around the exhibits while my family went inside. The staff there were really nice about having Don there- they were really sorry he couldn't come in and even offered to take him to their kennel facilities (but Don and I were fine with going to another exhibit). Above, Don is sitting underneath some giant prehistoric mammal (I think that's what it is...).
Don could definitely see the fish. He liked watching the staff feed these giant catfish.Above, Don watches the waves in the Pacific Ocean sea life tank. Poor Don- he wanted to go for a swim!
Next we saw the albino alligator then walked downstairs to the aquarium. Don was great at the stairs!

They had this little tunnel you could walk through, so Don and I went in. On the other side, you are in this glass sphere, and you can look up and see all the tropical fish. Don was more interested in the air vent than the fish though.
What's that?? Don saws these two fish (I think they are Angel Fish) and it caught his attention. It was pretty cute :)
They had a bridge that went over the entry way of the museum, so I took Don and it didn't phase him. Later we went to the planetarium (again, they were really nice about Don and showed me where a seat was with extra room for him to stretch out). Don was pretty tired for the long day, and fell fast asleep while I watched the show Journey to the Stars. It was amazing- it actually felt like I was moving and you could see all the stars and planets in 3D.
Don and I both had a fun time!! We'll be back again.
