Coral, sponges, jelly fish and more are to be found at Mote Marine Laboratories in Sarasota Florida. This is the best possible location to begin educating yourself and your children about the diverse populations that live just off shore here in Florida. There is so much to do and learn that you can easily spend two days at Mote Marine Laboratories and Aquarium in Sarasota Florida.

Lobster anyone? This lobster is at home in the tank at the aquarium in Mote Marine Aquarium and Laboratories in Sarasota Florida.   A visit to Mote Marine Aquarium and  Laboratories in Sarasota Florida means an educational day learning about the marine life that resides just off the coast here in our beautiful Sunshine State.

Here come the clowns.......fish that is. I though everyone would enjoy the video I made at Mote Marine Labs down in Sarasota Florida of the clown fish. Be sure to continue viewing so that you also see the little squid change colors. There are so many wonderful residents of our oceans and most of us are pretty clueless as to how beautiful they area. Mote Marine Labs in Sarasota Florida is one place for an education.
