Highlights / General details
Home to more than 11,000 ocean animals, representing nearly 500 species, the Aquarium celebrates the planet’s largest and most diverse body of water: the Pacific Ocean. Featuring 19 major habitats and 32 focus exhibits, the Aquarium of the Pacific is a world-class aquarium, exploring the waters of Southern California and Baja, the Northern Pacific, and the Tropical Pacific.
Horses and Dragons
While Pegasus is a mythical creature, did you know that winged horses really do exist in the ocean? Or, that male seadragons carry eggs until they hatch, and that seahorses can change color? Visitors will be able to see and learn more about the unusual animals in the Syngnathid group, which includes the sea moth (also known as Pegasus), seahorses, seadragans, pipefish, and razorfish through exhibit displays, a film in the Great Hall, and education programs in the Marine Life Theater.
Visitors will be able to learn more about animal extinctions, humans’ relationship with our planet, and our future ocean through a five-minute daily show in our Ocean Science Center. Animals on display will include fishes, newts, and salamanders native to local streams, as well as some invasive species of crayfish and finfish in these ecosystems; American alligators; healthy corals contrasted with corals overgrown with algae; oysters, mussels, and white abalone, representing species commonly propagated in the aquaculture farms; Atlantic cod; and cardinal tetras and discus fish.
