Our energetic and inquisitive African penguins are visitor favorites.
We feed the African penguins in our Splash Zone exhibit multiple times a day, sometimes by hand to make sure they get their daily vitamin, and sometimes by tossing food into the water to stimulate foraging behavior. Watch for underwater acrobatics as the penguins dart and dive to catch their fish.
Did you know that the giant clam is the largest clam in the world? It can weigh as much as 440 pounds, grow up to four feet, and live to be 100 years old or more. This rare beauty lives on shallow reefs in the Indian Ocean, the South Pacific and parts of South Africa.
How does a skate settle down for the evening? Do sharks get shuteye once the Aquarium closes? Find out with a sleepover! After fun activities and a bedtime snack, snuggle in next to your favorite exhibit, then wake up to a continental breakfast.
Our standards-based curriculum has been developed to provide educators with easy-to-use, Aquarium-centered science activities for the classroom.
