Discover why some sea creatures look so strange at this event dedicated to the coolest adaptations under the sea. Find out why bottom feeders can eat without seeing their food, why eels hang out in crevices, how a hagfish slimes its predators, and so much more.

Visit some of the newest animals on exhibit in the Aquarium like the Dwarf Cuttlefish, Pacific Hagfish, and the Tasseled Wobbegong, who may not have beauty on their side, but do have some impressive adaptations!


Included with regular admission
