Stately Turkey 'Ambassador' Visits Tampa Aquarium

A majestic pet turkey took a field trip to The Florida Aquarium in Tampa, checking out the array of fish and marine life.

“As a part of its world-class animal care, The Florida Aquarium regularly provides enrichment to its animal ambassadors,” the aquarium wrote, adding that pelicans, whistling ducks, and other animals have swung by for visits.

“The idea inspired a visit from another feathered friend in honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Thanks to an aquarium team member and their beloved pet, a Bourbon Red turkey, the aquarium is helping to spread holiday cheer.”
