Spooky Spirit

Aquarium staff members created some fun (and slightly spooky) jack o’lanterns for our Halloween member night – everything from an octopus to a smack of jellies, from a glow-in-the-dark anglerfish to a friendly penguin, a whale, a sea turtle – even Ariel & Flounder from Little Mermaid. Special thanks to Allen Protasio, Derek Hunziker, Andrea McCann, Renee Chaney, Caitlin Bonura and Sharon Coggin whose creations are featured here.
