Is that a what?

Today we went to the National Aquarium in Baltimore. There was a little girl in front of me about 5 years old. I heard her ask her mother, "Mom, is that a walrus????!"
Her mother very sweetly replied, "No honey, that's a catfish."
The two can so easily be confused, can't they?
We return home to Seattle tomorrow. And I can't wait.

A few years ago we went to the fair and there was a section that showcased farm animals. My son got very excited and yelled, "Look at that goat", as we entered the tent. It was a cow.

It's a little bit like my daughter spotting meerkats in the suburbs of NJ. Maybe animal mix-ups are an East Coast thing.

Catfish the size of walrus is a terrifying thought - lol!

Have a safe trip home! There's nothing sweeter than sleeping in your own bed.
