PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Folks from the Camden Aquarium set up some of their smaller animals on display for the children at Franklin Square this afternoon.
Brooke Truong, assistant marketing manager at Adventure Aquarium, says they brought some of the smaller critters over the bridge to the kids here in Philadelphia:
“Little alligators and sea stars and jellyfish.” And turtles and penguins.
Truong says the aquarium employees gave kids in Franklin Square an opportunity to see some of the animals being fed.
“I think it’s interesting for kids to see animals do some of the same things we do,” she says, “so for a turtle to eat a strawberry, they can appreciate that they’re living beings as well.”
For the bigger animals such as “Mighty Mike,” the aquarium’s 14-foot alligator, you’ll have to go to the Camden waterfront attraction.
