    It has been estimated that half the water in the whale shark's tank has been recycled as urine. The shark has requested a Brita filter, but it's currently on backorder from Amazon.

    There's a big window into the Ocean Voyager exhibit in the ballroom, second floor, past the restaurant. It's not obvious, so even on a busy day, it's relatively quiet. Beautiful.
