Have you seen them? Our giant Pacific octopus exhibit now includes what may be the largest collection of deep-sea rockfish ever on exhibit, from right here in the bay. This includes chili pepper, halfbanded (shown), short belly and pygmy rockfish. It’s a trick to safely exhibit these fish, which can be found at depths of 300 feet.

Have you seen this giant kelpfish in our Splash Zone? He’s got serious domestic duties guarding those eggs and keeping other fish at bay!
Feeling tentative today? Maybe it’s time to come out of hiding like this mosshead warbonnet. Happy #Friday and have a great weekend!
How big can the giant clam grow? Anyone know? You can see this one now in our Splash Zone!
