  • The largest living Atlantic coral reef in captivity.
  • A frog exhibit with 15 live frog habitats and 12 interactive stations.
  • Sharks.
  • Bats.
  • A 12-foot snake.
  • Alligators.
  • Turtles.
  • Iguanas.

Hello Rita,

Thank you for the recent visit and comment on my BabyBoomerAdvisorClub blog. It was so good to see you again.

If I had know you were this close to me, I would have driven over to see you. Boston is a long ride but to the Space Museum, less then 2 hours.

Glad you had a great vacation.

Southern smiles and world peace,
Sharon
