How much do our animals eat? On average, 305 pounds a day—nearly 56 tons a year! The Outer Bay animals take the most food, roughly 200 pounds of squid, four times a week. Our blackfooted penguins eat smelts—15 pounds, twice a day, and our invertebrates slurp 50 pounds of krill shakes a week!

Did you know that we hand- and pole-feed many of the animals in our Monterey Bay Habitats exhibit—even sharks? This helps ensure everybody gets just the right amount to eat—not too much, and not too little!
