It is always great to see those seven African penguins at the Vancouver Aquarium. They often stand together, and usually, when one of them does something like walking in the other direction, the others follow him or her. This time, however, they were just standing in mostly one spot and relaxing.
Elfin seems to love his red ball with which he can be seen playing a lot in his habitat – if he is not floating in a very relaxed way. Anyway, sometimes only the red ball is visible and Elfin is hiding behind it, but watching Elfin play is so much fun.
Although Hana and Helen have a lot of space in their habitat, they chose their smaller habitat in which they can usually be found waiting for their trainers before the dolphin show, i.e. Hana and Helen’s training session, starts. This time they just swam around there, visibly having fun doing so.
Today Jack was just hoovering in one corner (if you can say so) of Daisy’s and his habitat, and Daisy was doing the same at the opposite end. Nobody came down to the underwater viewing area. Well, maybe next time…
Usually there are two Steller sea lions swimming in their habitat at the Vancouver Aquarium – and sometimes you can even hear them from afar.
Watching Elfin, one of the sea otters at the Vancouver Aquarium, is always so much fun no matter what he does. This time after some relaxation he had lots of fun with his yellow ball.
When you visit the Vancouver Aquarium, make sure that you have a look at those beautiful belugas called Aurora and Qila. The underwater viewing area is a really good place to watch them swim by.
This is Hana, one of the Pacific white-sided dolphins at the Vancouver Aquarium during one of the afternoon shows. Isn’t she amazing?
Jack definitely was in playing mood today but Daisy stayed in her corner as she often does. Just look at those pictures! Isn’t Jack adorable?
Today the seven African penguins at the Vancouver Aquarium named Hope, Lillooet, Nelson, Salt Spring, Sechelt, Steveston and Tofino decided to go for a swim in their habitat – and then, literally, one by one came out again.
Helen, one of the Pacific white-sided dolphins at the Vancouver Aquarium, was enjoying herself in the smaller and more shallow part of their habitat whereas Hana was somehow not to be seen.
Meet Jack, one of the two harbour porpoises at the Vancouver Aquarium. The first few minutes – or were it hours? – Jack was just enjoying himself and swimming to the other side of his and Daisy’s habitat to see what Daisy was doing. But then he came down to say hi to us too! […]
