Gong Hei Fat Choi! Happy Chinese New Year to all!
To all our friends celebrating the start of the Year of the Horse, our best wishes for a fulfilling new year!
Since red is the traditional color of the new year, what better animal to feature than this yellow (yellow?) seahorse, Hippocampus kuda, which you can see in our Splash Zone exhibit galleries. Despite the name, yellow seahorses come in a variety of colors, including reddish-orange, yellow and even black.
(If you’re feeling especially prosperous, consider giving those you love a bright red Monterey Bay Aquarium gift card to start the year.)

Can you find the sea otter mom and pup in all the photos? We’re so lucky to have an area like this where animals can come in with the tides, help educate our guests about the wonders of Monterey Bay, then return to their natural home. (The pair was with us for just a day last week.)
