Maine State Aquarium

We visited the Maine State Aquarium in BoothBay Harbor. It was really small, but very cool. There was a tank that had sharks and skates in it that you can touch. Very Cool!

And it had a big touch tank filled with all kinds of little creatures that you can find off the shores of Maine. Lobsters, sea urchins, starfish, sand dollars, sea cucumbers (they were gross and squishy!), scallops, crabs, snails. We could pick them all up and check them out. It was very cool. We had a hard time getting the kids to leave.
The also had a HUGE lobster.
A blue, yellow and red lobster. I didn't realize there were yellow lobsters or that there were red ones that hadn't been cooked. (hee hee)
You can click on the picture below and read about the largest lobster ever caught!!!
