Living Planet Aquarium

Lion fish–one of our favorites to see

 

If you are looking for our new post about the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium, click here. They have moved to a new location and have a much larger facility.

We wrote a post last year about the Living Planet Aquarium in Sandy. My boys love to go and we happened to get a great deal on passes, so we headed there yesterday. Aquarium passes are only $20/adult and $16/child (3-12). I think this is a great deal and for those of us who live near Lehi, it is only a 20-25 minute drive for a great activity during the winter. I am always looking for some way to pass the winter days.
 
They have added a new section to the aquarium since we have been with some more reptiles and amphibians, and a few more fish. They also had scorpions and you could see them glow green in the dark–my kids loved that. Otters are coming sometime in January, so if you haven’t been for awhile you’ll find lots of new things to see.
 
The aquarium is moving to a new location next year. So they will be closed November 2012 through April 2013.
 
And since my last post didn’t have pictures, I am adding a few here so that you can see what it is like at our little local aquarium (there is a short video of the turtle eating lettuce).
Checking out the frogs and salamanders.

The penguin exhibit.
The anaconda–first time I have seen it out of the water.
