Our energetic and inquisitive African penguins are visitor favorites.
Watch carefully and you might even see them communicating with each other. When penguins flap their wings or bow their heads, they're telling each other how they feel. Throwing their heads back and wings out means "I'm happy." Leaning forward and opening their beaks means "Go away."
Ever wonder what the Aquarium looks like at night? Join us for a sleepover and find out! Explore the Aquarium without daytime crowds and enjoy special programs, a late-night nature movie and a light bedtime snack before falling asleep in front of your favorite exhibit.
Our bigfin reef squid may look like visitors from another planet, but they're actually raised here at the Aquarium behind the scenes. The squid are barely a quarter-inch long when they hatch, but can grow to more than a foot. See them now in Tentacles!
