We hadn’t been to the Coney Island Aquarium in years, and it was quite a hike from the St. Charles Avenue streetcar to the Zoo, so we went to see fish instead. There were a pair of lazy sea otters, who looked quite well fed, penguins and puffins, and some frogs. There was also the biggest collection of jellyfish I’d ever seen. One room housed a Mississippi environment, with an owl- you saw a lot more there than the actual river. Another was supposed to be the Amazon- I got the sense that this had suffered badly in the hurricanes, and what we were seeing was what they were able to cobble together with what was left.
