Living Seas ~ Flashback

It's hard to believe The Living Seas Pavilion is 25 years old!
This Butterflyfish spends its days cruising the Living Seas coraf reefs eating small crustaceans. Butterflyfish sometimes swim in schools and when they find a mate it's for life.
We started visitng Epcot in the late 80's and one of my favorite memories of those trips was spending hours.... 
no kidding hours in The Living Seas Pavillion at Epcot.There's always something exciting going on!
  We'd stop long enough to eat at The Coral Reef hoping to see a diver or if you were really lucky Mickey himself. Then it would right back to see the another Living Seas demonstration or just watch in amazement and awe as a sea turtle swam by. 
Most Sea Turtles are nomads and travel about 1300 miles a day!  Mature females will often return, sometimes over thousands of miles, to the beach where they hatched to lay their eggs.
The exotic beauty of the Lionfish can literally take your breath away. The venomous sting of the Lionfish is extremely painful and can cause nausea and breathing difficulties.It relies on camouflage and lightning-fast reflexes to capture prey, mainly fish and shrimp.

We have lots of wonderful memories of The Living Seas. DS still enjoys his fascination with the aquatic. He's built and maintains two fresh water gallonormous (no idea how many gallons they're just huge) tanks and a salt water reef. I'm so looking forward to our next trip in the spring and maybe this time we'll do Dive Quest!
