With over 4,000 animals here at the Aquarium, we’ve got a lot of mouths to feed!

Additional feedings change daily; visit the Information Desk for the comprehensive feeding schedule.

Animal Enrichment

Watch as animal caregivers provide the animals fun toys to play with and puzzles to solve, and celebrate with them when they discover the treat inside!
