Diamondback terrapin have a couple adaptations that make them pretty special. And good thing, these turtles have a big job to do to keep our coastal marshes healthy. Learn more about the terrific terrapins!

This summer, the New England Aquarium is THE place to see turtles! It's usually our sea turtles that get all the attention. But did you know that weaving between the tendrils of the tree roots in our Mangrove exhibit lives the most unique turtle in America? Introducing the diamondback terrapin!

A family affair
There are two families of harbor seals living in our Front Plaza exhibit: the spotted and the non-spotted families. Can you tell the difference? Here are some family photos, see if you can tell who's who! LINK: http://trainers.neaq.org/2009/04/whos-who.php

Waving to the paparazzi
New England Aquarium Whale Watches bring you up close to the massive marine mammals on Stellwagen Bank. Just be sure to bring your camera. You'll want to remember this kind of wave action!

It surprises many people to learn that Myrtle, the 550-lb green sea turtle, eats mostly vegetables. All. Day. Long. Now you can see her graze in the Giant Ocean Tank for less. We're waiving online ticketing surcharges—through Labor Day only! Visit the queen of the G.O.T. and save.

New Addition: Flamboyant Cuttlefish
This handsome species was recently added to our cuttlefish exhibit. They can be wildly colorful (or not, they change color) and boast the toxic skin to go with those vibrant tints. They're just a few of the fun new happenings around these parts.

See what waiting for you this month:

Poison Dart Frogs
These little guys know a thing or two about hot, steamy weather. Come see them in their tropical Amazon Rainforest habitat from the comfort of the Aquarium in downtown Boston. Here's what else is waiting for you in the Amazon Rainforest exhibits: http://bit.ly/AmazonRainforestExhibit

Fancy Feathers
With their funky yellow crest feathers, the rockhopper penguins are definitely the cool kids in the penguin exhibit. What's with those feathers anyway? It's all about the ladies, learn more here: http://penguins.neaq.org/2011/02/many-people-ask-why-do-those-penguins.html #penguins   #coolkids   #fancy   #feathers

Overall, a great aquarium. Giant tank in the middle that you walk around on a spiral ramp. The penguins are the best. With kids you'll be there for hours. As adults you could probably see the majority in 45 to an hour. Its really not all that large. Just don't go on a rainy school vacation day... That was a poor life choice.

I went on a rainy Monday. Lots of folks and kids made it very crowded and loud but I still had a great time. I learned and enjoyed. Be prepared for a $37.00 bill to park in the garage, though. That plus the entrance fee probably makes this a more spendy excursion for a large family.

The pinguins get The attention. This is incredibble. The 200.000 gal tank with more than 500 species inside is nothing less that amazing. The last Star will be given once they Pay more attention and keep cleaner The sea mammals area, which looks somehow abandoned.

Nice exhibits. Terrible cafetria (the falafel plate is to be avoided at all costs). Good for 2-3 hours (the exhibits, not the cafeteria. You should eat somewhere else. Really)

I went with my brother and we had loads of fun. We enjoyed seeing the Penguins and Sea Turtles the most. However, I found it to be a little pricey, not too pricey though. Would totally recommend!

Amazing place and beautiful creatures. Apparently people don't realize you go for the experience, not the price and they don't realize what the money goes to. Anyways, amazing place I'd go 1000 more times if I could! Reasonable price for the great family experience!

Go to the national aquarium in Baltimore. I thought Boston aquarium was disappointing! Although I didn't get to touch sting rays in Baltimore.
