African Aquarium in Tyler

In the African Aquarium you can enjoy penguins (they look like they’re in tuxedos, it’s great), fish, tortoises, weavers, turacos, plovers, and African gray parrots. In the North American Herpetarium you can enjoy looking at tarantulas (what I mean by “enjoy” is stomach looking at them with queasy curiosity because spiders are scary when they’re that big and furry), turtles, snakes, lizards, and frogs. Finally in the Wild Bird Walkabout you can enter a room filled with six hundred of the prettiest birds you have ever seen. You can even feed the for just a dollar.

If you are like me, you didn’t recognize half the names of the animals such as plovers, kudus, and coatis. All the more reason to go out and educate yourself.

Have fun when you visit the aquarium!
