Fish in the Shedd

SA-002

Operation Bandicoot, Day 6, July 15.

Our target for this day was the Shedd Aquarium, which is one of the better aquariums in North America. This was our second visit to this particular place, our first being from a previous trip a few years back. The Shedd is famous for some of it’s more exotic offerings, such as beluga whales, otters, and several types of penguins. They also have a few arapaima, which are favorites of Caitlin.

All kinds of fish can be seen at the Shedd.

Some creatures, like the otters and dolphins, refused to hold still long enough for me to take their picture, so this is only a sample of what the Shedd has to offer. I’ve been to several aquariums over the years, and I can honestly say that the this is one of the best. If you’re ever in Chicago, I strongly recommend paying this aquatic zoo a visit.
