Brace yourself. You’re gonna see some of the cutest creatures of the universe. 10835270_10206343040792869_6078770331491992165_o

In the 22 to 30 feet deep tank, there you can swim with the gentle giants such as the whale sharks, leopard whiprays, bowmouth guitarfish, zebra sharks, sawfish, and different species of rays.

The don’t that their staff most emphasized was “Don’t touch the animals. Don’t ever touch the animals.” I know it’s tempting but it’s for the best.

We were not allowed to touch the animals. However, they didn’t warn the animals not to touch us. Guess what, the whale shark bumped me with its tail. I swear I did my best to avoid the whale shark but it is so big that it couldn’t get avoided in just a few seconds. That butt high five of that big thing to me made me smile.

Every time I see ANY stingray near me, I get nervous. Why? Stingrays aren’t scary. STINGrays aren’t scary. Luckily, I got out of the aquarium without feeling any pain. Just don’t hurt them and they won’t sting you!
