This was one of the many sculptures throughout the park. Made of marble, it depicts all the eggs of the different critters found in the marshlands and how they relate in size to each other. The oblong one belongs to a snake.
Harbor Seal swimming around and having fun. There were two pups but they weren't cooperating for a photo op.
Another one of the sculptures, this one of the river otters. Once abundant in NC, but rarely found.
He gave me a wonderful shot. I begged him to look up before the horde of kids stormed in. And he did. Isn't he cute? I love otters. Little river, big river (like in South America) and sea.
Black Bamboo. I thought it all was green. Learn something new everyday.
My favorite place was the reptile exhibit and these tropical frogs. I love them. Now I have to do some research. Like I have time for anything else. But they were so cute. No more than two or three inches. And they move fast. So pretty.
A black and yellow guy. Didn't get much info because of the stampede of little ones. They were loud too.
This is a Victoria Crown Pigeon. About two feet tall and can fly. One flew over my head.
An Eclectus Parrot. Very loud. Scared many people, young and old. It was great seeing grown men jump.
Alligator. Very large. Signs all over saying that yes, they were alive, and to leave them alone. I was waiting for a bright person to climb over the barrier. I wasn't lucky this time.
Pumas, Mountain Lions, Cougars. Check out those feet!
