Baby Seahorses at the Mote Aquarium – Sarasota, Florida

Our trip to Florida brought us to the scientifically-reknowned research center known as the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium.

Situated in the beautiful town of Sarasota on 10.5 acres of land, Mote is a fascinating place for anyone with even a reMOTE interest in ocean life.

We wanted to see manatees and sea turtles but were enamored by something much different: seahorse babies!

Other sweet finds were the always-entertaining Cuttlefish,

and a touchable sea cucumber.

Of course, we also found two manatees munching on romaine lettuce.

A visit to Mote should be on everyone’s agenda if you visit west-central Florida.

  1. Lana – cuttlefish are odd and cool at the same time. So glad to have seen one.
