We finished out his visit to see me in Atlanta with a trip to the GA Aquarium where we were amazed as he talked to fish and animals. Other guest took photos as the animals and sea creatures came to the windows to communicate with Jamel! 

Congratulations to Jamel!

John Rhodes & Jordyn stopped by SC Wild's Heritage Center last week to answer our questions on one of the petrified rocks in the SC Wild's Science Center.
