The Long Island Aquarium was great and brought a touch tank for Matt Lauer and I to explore. We had a bamboo shark, chain dogfish (catshark), spider crab, sea stars, a sea urchin, and a horseshoe crab. Couldn't talk about them all, but it was great fun and the crowd outside watching loved it. I especially liked petting the bamboo shark and dogfish! And talking about about how sea stars can exude their stomachs out of their bodies into a clam, digest the clam, and then pull their stomachs back in - Cool!
Here's a link to the spot:
