view web site ›'s insider take:

At this Lido Key aquarium, kids of all ages gawk at color-changing cuttlefish, a 135,000-gallon shark tank, and Molly the Mollusk, a 27-foot-long preserved giant squid discovered in New Zealand. At Contact Cove, Mote's aquatic petting zoo, visitors can touch sea stars, horseshoe crabs, and sea urchins. Just next door, in the Goldstein Marine Mammal Center, wildlife specialists work to rehabilitate injured sea turtles, dolphins, and whales so that they can be returned to their natural habitats.
