We started our trip in the jungle habitat. It's so beautiful to walk through with all the waterfalls, trees, and green. There's so many cool animals - like my favorite the monkeys.
Next we headed to the aquarium. First you get to see all the cute and adorable penguins! I don't know about you, but I just find them to be the cutest animals! And I love watching them swim all around the tank. They're so perfect!
There's tons of fish and sea turtles, but I didn't get many good photos of them. I did get some great photos of the jellyfish though. Jellyfish are really so magical and entrancing to watch. Of course, the first thing I think of is Finding Nemo and hoping from one jellyfish to the next.
I developed an obsession for sting rays while I was there. They're so cute!
After that we visited the butterfly pavilion next door. I've loved butterflies ever since I was little and I still think walking through the butterfly exhibit. There's so many brightly colored and beautifully designed patterns on all the butterflies. Once you exit the garden you walk through with butterflies floating around, there's butterflies/caterpillars still in their cocoons and just emerging. I pretty much just revert back to my 7 year old self in this exhibit.
We also walked through the orangutan and gorilla exhibits before heading to the desert dome. I'm not gonna lie, in the desert habitat I was most impressed with all the cactus everywhere and in true blogger fashion I took a bunch of photos of all the cactus.
