Bass Pro and the Wonders of Wildlife

I took my family to Bass Pro this past weekend in Springfield, Mo. Most people think of of it as just fishing and hunting store, but there is a really cool exibit called Wonders of Wild life. Here's some pics.




Believe it or not, but 64,000 gallons and it's one of the smaller aquariums they have. This one had some of the largest bass and crappies and other freshwater fishes in the U.S.








There are many area like this in the Wonders of Wildlife.







Here's a good picture of one of the many water falls.






My girlfriend infront of one the many aquariums.







Okay, now the good stuff. What I enjoyed the most. I think this tank is 22,000 gallons. But there's tons of fish and at least 8" some green eel.





























Also, you can scuba dive in those tanks to help clean the algae and what not. All you need is to be 18, CPR and 1st Aid certified, Scuba certified and Dan O2 Certified. Plus dive atleast once a month. My family lives all around that area, so it's no problem for me. So I'm going to find out if I can do it or not.

Also, you can "parent" one of exhibits and I'm going to donate 50 bucks and parent a mandarin fish.

If anyone gets the chance to go to the Springfield/Branson area, definately check out Wonders of Wildlife.

Well, it is where Johnny Morris started his company. My son kept trying to reach for each fish swiming by.

And my mistake, the salt water is roughly 220,000 gallons.
