Academy of Sciences is a great place to photograph creatures. My most beloved animal is the albino alligator; I believe he has a battle scar since he got tore up by the other alligator (who no longer shares the space with him for obvious reasons). Very vicious. He’s missing a “finger.”
My favorite place at the Academy is the rainforest. Who doesn’t love humidity? I also enjoy my time in the downstairs aquarium although it doesn’t compare to the Monterey Bay Aquarium by any means, in my opinion. Sometimes on a leisure day, I like to sit on the stairs at one of their colossal fish tanks and look up; it’s somewhat mesmerizing and romantic.
