Photos from my trip to John Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, IL on June 18, 2006.

Many times when I have visited Chicago to see my favorite band, Project Object, I've thought about visiting Shedd Aquarium, but just didn't have the time.  On June 17th, I drove out to Chicago to see the Zappa Plays Zappa concert at the Auditorium Theater.  This time, I was able to stay one more day since I was on summer vacation, so I finally visited Shedd Aquarium.  I always thought it was mostly geared toward fish, but there were plenty of other creatures there too, including lizards, frogs and even a few mammals.  In fact, their main attraction was a Komodo Dragon.  Unfortunately, he was asleep in a corner and I couldn't photograph him.  Some pictures are spectacular, while others are below average, but I wanted to include everything possible.   I separated them by type of animal.  If you enjoy animals and nature, you might also like my photographs of Insects and Spiders and Wildlife on the Huron River.
