Shark feeding at the Sydney Aquarium

This is the city side of Darling Harbour at night. I am sitting on the benches in front of the Imax theatre waiting for Mahtab to meet me for dinner after she gets off work.

Abby and I went to the Sydney Aquarium and did a shark feeding on a glass bottom boat.

We were taken on a tour of the kitchen where they prepared the food for all the aquraum life as well as all the animals at the wildlife center. They had a well stocked kitchen, items such as fresh spinach, strawberries, grapes, apples, carrots, romaine lettuce, fresh shrimp, squid, fish........
We were then instructed to put on our life jackets and walk up stairs. Above the tank where we got on to the boat was lit by fluorescent lights and super hot and humid. We then went out to the middle of the tank and looked at all the little fishies. We started by dumping in a bucket of minced fish. Then we each grabbed a handful of shrimp and threw that around. The shark started circling our boat when the food got bigger, such as the squid and whole fish. It was cool. The fish were really pretty and it was very cool being so close to a live shark and not being behind glass.

There was a "Where's Waldo" theme throughout the aquarium (and the wildlife center)
