Gator Alley and Turtle Canyon
Everywhere I looked, there was all sorts of educational facts about fish and other aquatic animals. "Gator Alley" introduced you to "Mighty Mike", (the largest alligator in the country, excluding the Everglades), along with some smaller reptiles and amphibians. "Turtle Canyon" was a new exhibit which featured "Bravo" the Galapagos Tortoise, "Thunder", the Alligator Snapping Turtle and "Denver", the Loggerhead Sea Turtle. (Bravo was listed at 84 years old, and weighed in at 650-pounds!)
When leaving "Turtle Canyon", I ran across a most interesting diagram, which showed the floor-layout of the Aquarium.
