This little guy, the Nautilus, is just one of the pretty and unusual sea creatures we saw at the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center. It has a face only a mother can love.
Here's the same Nautilus kissing the glass of the tank, which makes it looks as if he's checking himself out in a mirror.The aquarium in general was just okay. I'm not sure it was worth the $21.00 admission fee, especially since the place was crawling with people pushing SUV-sized baby strollers. I suppose that's expected when you go to an attraction like this on a weekend.
When we weren't dodging kids and baby carriages, we were able to see some really cool stuff - huge sea turtles, sharks, a hedgehog, a gigantic lobster, seahorses, and a Komodo Dragon.
More on him later.
