Trip To The Aquarium <3
Wow! Great shots by Art Institute of Boston student Hannah Grichman. Let’s see what we have here.
Top: That’s an epaulette shark egg case! You can faintly see the outline of the baby shark inside. Visitors can watch them moving around before they hatch. Learn more and see what the baby sharks look like.
Second Row Left: That’s a leafy seadragon! They are fascinating and very rare relatives of seahorses that are only found in South Australia. Learn more about them and see video of them moving around.
Second Row Right: Gotta get that one
Third Row: This is an Australian spotted jelly. The Aquarium has a robust jelly breeding program. Take a look at juvenile jellies like this behind the scenes.
Fourth Row Left: Gotta get that
Fourth Row Right: Gotta get that
Fifth Row: This only happens at the Aquarium once a year. It’s a huge veil of eggs laid by the goosefish in the Northern Waters gallery. Learn more about the egg veil and see video of it moving.
Sixth Row Left: Gotta get that one
Sixth Row Right: These are cownose rays in The Trust Family Foundation Shark and Ray Touch Tank. Visitors can reach right in and touch these slick rays. But if you really want to be amazed by these animals, take a look at what their teeth look like. Probably the most unexpected set of chompers in the animal kingdom.
