How big can the giant clam grow? Anyone know? You can see this one now in our Splash Zone!
Have any of you divers seen this fish in the wild? What’s its name, and where’s it found?
You can also see it in our Splash Zone!
Ready for the answer? It’s the tropical lyretail anthias (Pseudanthias squamipinnis).
Need a reason to visit in the New Year? We have thousands, like this gold ring tang (Ctenochaetus strigosus) in the Coral Cave in Splash Zone. We also have extended hours Jan. 1: 9:30 am - 6:00 pm (9 am opening for members)!
Here’s looking at you!
Here’s someone who knows how to have fun at the Aquarium! Noah Jackson may have been born with some physical challenges, but that doesn’t slow him down when he visits.
Did you know that our penguins get regular health checks? This one looks pretty happy about it! They even know their names and respond to simple commands such as stepping on a scale or getting into a crate for transport.
Have you seen them? We have some beautiful (and large!) giant clams in the Splash Zone!
These guys look like they don’t mess around! We have 15 dwarf cuttlefish (Sepia bandensis) on exhibit in the Splash Zone. This species is known to frequent the waters off Indonesia, Phillipines and Papua New Guinea. Ours are about six months old, and 2 1/2 inches long.
Love cuttlefish? We have four juvenile pharaoh cuttlefish (Sepia pharaonis) in the Splash Zone! But you’ll need to look carefully for these masters of camouflage. Let us know if you find them when you visit!
You asked for it: a video of the leaping blenny for Leap Day!
