Today's blog post is chock full of cool video of cuttlefish eating — in fast motion and regular. Check it out!
A beautiful broadclub cuttlefish is currently stalking our cuttlefish exhibit. It is fed an assortment of seafoods, including live crabs now and then. Recently a staff member had their phone recording video during afternoon snack. Take a look at this cool behind-the-scenes video!

We just added 16 common cuttlefish to the cuttlefish exhibit. Caution! They are extremely adorable.
But sometimes you might have to exercise your powers of observation to see these little guys. The juveniles often settle into different nooks and burrowed into the sand throughout the exhibit. We've pointed out just a few of them in this handy GIFs. These little guys have had quite the journey, ...

See some of the fascinating features that went into the brand new octopus habitat.
Our newest exhibit is beautiful to behold. Visitors have been wonderstruck by the diversity of species, the colors, and the artistic elements, like the rock formations inside and the sculptural rails along the outside. You might be interested to know that as much care went into designing the ...

Some of the  baby seahorses have graduated to the adult tank! Check in with the lined seahorses. 
It takes about 9 months for baby lined seahorses to grow to full size. So as you can see, these seahorses born this past September are already well on their way to adulthood. Several weeks ago they graduated to adult food — mysid shrimp — and a few are large enough to go into the larger tank!

The aquarists that care for the animals in our Armored and Venomous exhibit use kevlar gloves and always have a buddy nearby anytime they have to work in this tank. #fish #handlewithcare #video

A giant glass tank spiraled by a multilevel walkway is the main draw at this waterfront attraction.- Google
"When we visit a new place, we like to go to their aquarium."
"Expensive for the size of the aquarium and variety of aquatic life."

It's a nice Aquarium. There is a beautiful corral reef type tank that's in the center of the whole complex which goes up by four flours and holds many many fish. Beautiful to see all those fish in that space and cool to see the staff put on their wet suits and driving masks and get into the tank to feed those fish. Any kid would be in awe with this aquarium. I don't recommend bringing someone who gets worried about animal living space in captivity(a.k.a me) with you because they will ruin the awe that comes from seeing all these fish.

Very busy when I went on a monday. Not very expensive for the attraction itself but you also have to pay to park. Family fun but I went simply as a sea life enthusiast and there were too many people for my liking. Will have to go during an off season for sure. Lots of tourists!

CAREFUL!! PRICEY PARKING (like 42 bucks for 2 hours) Aquarium itself was very well designed and interesting. Lots of various species to see, I wish that the IMAX was open when I went (was closed for a "special event" of some sort). The highlight is the huge cylindrical aquarium in the middle. There were sharks and a huge sea turtle in there! Got some really nice pictures out of it.

While it is not the biggest aquarium I really like taking my kids here. It is easy to see everything in one day if you get there right when they open. They ask have imax and a boat for whale watching. The huge cylinder tank with spiral walkway is always worth the trip. It is a good idea to find cheap parking and take the subway instead of parking at the aquarium.

Great aquarium, with an intuitive layout for both large and small groups. The main part of the aquarium has a central pillar which is one of the world's largest fish tanks, and branching off of it are multiple floors of separate tanks. The residents include piranhas, penguins, a set of extremely large turtles, electric eels, and seals! In terms of interactive education, the aquarium provides a plethora of demos on each floor, and includes a tidal pool manned by staff to answer all your aquatic queries. For lunch, you can either go to the cafeteria or step outside to walk about a mile to pretty much anywhere to eat. The entire building, food court and all, is wheelchair accessible and definitely deserves five stars. My single qualm with the place is its hours. Many times you find your outing to the place cut short due to closing time, but this too is justified, because the fish need specialized care too after all, and the marine biologists caring for them can't go back and forth between tourists and fish continuously. All in all, a great place for an outing even if you aren't a student.

It's a bit small. Only took us about 1.5 hours for us to get through, plus another 40 mins for the IMAX. The tanks are beautiful and appear well maintained. The Galapagos 3d movie is interesting, but the glasses are old and the film has horizontal lines running through it, which are a bit distracting. Overall, it was a great visit.

We had a great time! We got a special "behind the scenes" tour with Becca, and we found it very interesting. We wish there were more sharks! and bigger sharks! There were only two sleepy sharks in the petting tank, so we didn't get to touch them. Loved the giant sea turtle, but she pretty much kept her head in a hole the whole time. What can you do... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

They let about twice the amount of people in that should be in there at one time given how small it is. My experience was shoulder to shoulder the whole time. The design of the building is cool with one large tank in the middle. Very pricey though, cost over $100 for 2 adults if you are going to park in the garage right next to the aquarium and stay for 2 hours. Not worth the money in my opinion.
