Sheds Aquarium I recently had the opportunity to visit the Shedd aquarium in Chicago Il The aquarium has a vast array of aquatic animals on display Throughout Shedds you can find aquatic animals from various locations around the globe You can view Pacific white-sided dolphins or creatures that invade the amazon river The amount of aquatic life is almost endless The Shedd aquarium opened in 1930 At that time the Shedd only had a small amount of animals on display Today Shedd Aquariums exhibits convey the full scope of environmental habitats and conservation issues Naturalistic experiential exhibits place guests in an ecosystem providing a sense of place where animals live The most intriguing display at Shedds was the Sea Otter exhibit In addition to seeing the animals in their simulate environment I learned some interesting facts about the Sea Otter For example I did not realize that More than 90 percent of the worlds sea otters live in the coastal waters of Alaska from Prince William Sound to the Aleutian Islands with numbers estimated at 150000 to 200000 Another interesting fact is that Sea otters are the smallest marine mammals Adult males are about 5 feet long and weigh between 60 and 85 pounds Females vary from 4 to 412 feet and 35 to 60 pounds Their small size is a dubious distinction in an environment where sheer bulk is an adaptation against the heat-sapping properties of water In addition sea otters do not have the thick insulating layer of blubber found in cetaceans and pinnipeds They rely instead on their fur and a rapid metabolism to survive in the near-freezing waters of Alaskas seas Admission to the Shedd is a bit expensive 15 is a little steep however I really enjoyed the experience In addition to the 15 entry fee you also need to bring extra cash for food gifts and any other shows you may want to attend
