Facility:The Living Planet Aquarium
Description:Exhibits feature sharks, rays, seahorses, jellyfish as well as octopus, eels, starfish, amphibians, trout and other freshwater species, providing a unique opportunity for the many landlocked Utahans, particularly children, who have not previously had the chance to interact with such creatures. There are lots of things to see and do at The Living Planet Aquarium including feeding stingrays, watching an octupus, learning about right-shelled and left-shelled snails from the ocean, watching sea horses and sharks, learning about electric eels by watching an electrical readout above an electric eel and by touching a small electric current display. Wow, this sounds like a must see Aquarium.

This would have gotten 5 stars from me if it hadn't been so expensive. The prices are higher than listed on this site. Adult's $17.95, Teens ages 13-17 $14.95 and kids 3-12 $12.95
This place was perfect for my 10 and 12 year old. It was great for them to see marine animals in real life! Some of the exhibits had little cubby's where the kids could crawl inside and see the exhibit from under the water. The sharks were wonderful, but the shark feeding was not too exciting. They lowered signs into the water to designate a feeding stations, then held a fish in clamps right in front of the sign. If the sharks were eating the fish, they were were behind the sign and we couldn't see them. Each type of shark was trained to only eat form it's designated feeding station. There were also sea turtles and manta ray's in that tank, and they were beautiful. The river otter's were my kids favorite, because they are so active, and cute and something we'd never seen at a zoo before. The Amazon room was well done, with exotic plants, toucans, caiman's, poison dart frogs. As my kids say, all the things you see on tv that you wish you could see in person. We had a great time and could have stayed a little longer than our 2 1/2 hours.
