  1. I'm such a fan of sea life! And, you have captured them so beautifully here. So many beautiful photographs. What was it like being able to actually touch one? I'm sure that was a surreal experience. :)

    How in the world did they get so many exotic mammals in one place? Certainly you would never think to see a shark so far inland! In Vegas of all places. What a treat that must have been.
