It’s World Ocean Day! And what better way to highlight this unfamiliar occasion than to acknowledge THE No. 1 most visited, most popular, and approvingly the best aquarium in the world. Monterey Bay Aquarium is an absolute MUST for every California visitors.
This tank! Besides the photo op of capturing the people and the big tank and the sharks, there are these tiny little sardines. They are clustered altogether forming like a carpet on the bottom of the water. It is sooo unbelievable. They’d move in sync, making way when the shark comes.
I love this turtle. I will have a separate entry solely for this turtle.
Bucket List checked. I finally get to see penguins!
The morays are fascinating. Their head comes out from one head and then their tail to another hole. The tank they are in looks like a puzzle maze where you figure out which tail belongs to which head. Counting how many in the tank is quite challenging. With the cleaner shrimps hanging-out with the morays, it is even more fun to look at that tank.
Some of you may be familiar with my quite popular post on Unusual where the seadragons are the star attractions for their cool existence and definite wondrous appearance. Well, here’s a leafy seadragon.
This one is called anemone. Plants or animals? Find out here. You get to see it out of the tank if you visit the Rocky Intertidal Zone in Cabrillo, San Diego.
I’m going to go with the majority. The best attraction is got to be The Jelly Experience.
You get that uplifting sense on the way they float fluidly and just how beautiful they look. They truly are such magnificent creatures. I hope you are not missing my Jelly Experience series.
Also check out the otters, seahorses, kelps, whales, holding starfish, etc.
Not convinced? Here is a science and photography, and Monterey Bay enthusiast.
She has gone to Monterey Bay Aquarium and was able to capture some of the amazing shots of the marine animals. Moreso, she explored the whole Monterey Bay, shared some news and facts about it and the aquarium, and covered further of its beaches, and sea otters.
