    Monterey Bay Aquarium

    I hadn't ventured out here in quite a while, so figured it was due time...the aquarium had recently undergone a quite large renovation and update of some areas, so it was good to see it all finished. Onwards to photos...




















    Ohhh noooooooo!


    Bat rays are awesome.








    Go cry, emo cuttlefish.


    Hooray moray eels! I call them Snappy-Pants McBone Crusher.




    THESE ARE NOT PENGUINS.




    Apart from Branson, Missouri, of course.










    The current special exhibit...








    Leafy sea dragons...the black/brown one is my favorite






    At the end of one of the exhibits, John Cleese randomly sits on a video screen and reads about water.


    Then he looks up and stares at you in an unnerving manner. BEST. AQUARIUM. EVER.

    That about does it...thanks for looking and hope you enjoyed!

    Very cool--thank for sharing.

    Monterey Bay Aquarium has been a long-time fave of mine. Haven't been since 2000 though; but might have a chance later this summer.

    'Ditto on this question. It looks like it has to do with the deep-sea research out in the bay. (Those who have been there or otherwise research it will have learned there's a big underwater canyon out in the bay.)

    Yes, it is mainly for kids, it's a big video screen with little monitor screens and could pull up video and information mostly about the deep sea critters and environment.

    What a wonderful capture of the pink jellyfish. If only they weren't so dangerous and defensive!

    Very nice report!
    Ohhai!

    Dude! What day were you there? I missed you by this much! I was there the 15th! That would be so uncool if I bumped right by you without even knowing who you were! AHHHHH!
