 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.)
