A Visit to the North Carolina Aquarium, Fort Fisher, NC

Over the weekend, Roger and I visited my mom in Wilmington and took some time to stop by the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher. Here are some photos of the plants and animals that are on display.

This is a Venus Flytrap, a carnivorous plant that only grows within a small radius of Wilmington, NC.

Two examples of one of my worst nightmares: rattlesnakes. I can not recall if these were Eastern Diamondback or not, but I think they are.

Tree frogs cling to the inside of their glass enclosure.

Yes, we do have large alligators in eastern North Carolina.

This cuttlefish is seen head-on as his colors oscillate.

Pink coral.

Blue Coral.

A clownfish among the tentacles of an anemone.

Jellyfish, gracefully potential pain.

Translucent, the jellyfish displays the floral pattern within its body.

Another shot of the same jellyfish, this time from the side.

Another view of the cuttlefish.

Wonderful pictures! I particularly like the tree frogs and the jellyfish. I've tried taking pictures of jellyfish, but they haven't come out that well.
