The Oklahoma Aquarium is more than OK…It’s an amazing underwater adventure for all ages! If you get a chance to visit Tulsa, OK, then you have to stop and visit this aquarium. Ocean life, river life, and native water species can all be found under one roof. Want to pet a baby shark, a sting ray or a sea urchin? How about feeding sting rays or turtles? There is a lot to see and hands on things to do as well.
The atmosphere was filled with excitement and joy as everyone was excited about the abundant sea life within this aquarium. So many beautiful fish to see. So many opportunities to explore and be apart of.
So many different types of starfish to view throughout the exhibits (not all seen here), but it was even more fun to be able to touch one.
You can feed the turtles, sting rays and watch the shark eat during their feeding time.
Teddy was so excited about being able to pet a sting ray along with a baby shark and a horseshoe crab. With so many cool sea animals to touch and see, what kid wouldn’t want to do this.
Teddy was obsessed with the sting rays. He loved watching how graceful they were “flying” through the water.
There are so many different species of beautiful colorful fish to see, there is no way I could post them all here. I suggest taking your time and soak in the beauty and tranquility of all these sea creatures.
The shark tunnel is amazing to walk through. You are surrounded by thousands of gallons of water and sharks! Bull Sharks and Nurse Sharks inhabit the very large tank. If you visit on Mondays or Thursdays, you can witness the shark feeding during certain times. While we were waiting for the feeding time, we noticed the sharks were reacting as if they knew it was time to eat. Sharks have poor eye sight so they use their sense of smell to locate their food. It was a learning experience to watch how they located and searched for their food. When one of the sharks missed the food, the crowd watching reacted with an “Aww!”, but when a shark chomped down on his bite sized raw fish, the crowd erupted in cheer. The energy was exciting and fun to be apart of.
This beautiful Sea Turtle was so graceful to watch. I think he was showing off for the people watching too. My husband got splashed!
Octopus coming soon!!
Coming Fall of 2019 is a brand new Octopus exhibit. We were able to view one of the newest octopus for their exhibit, but because it was still trying to acclimate to its new environment, it was curled up in a very small shelter.
