The Sea Life Aquarium in Sydney is pretty great. It had some unique sea life that we hadn’t seen in other aquariums we’ve visited and we enjoyed our afternoon there. We particularly enjoyed the penguin exhibit, the dugongs, saw fish, sharks, and stonefish!
Any time we visit an aquarium we linger at the jelly tanks. There is something so peaceful about jellyfish and their gentle, effortless movements. We filmed these beautiful jellies at some of our favorite aquariums across the world.
We saw some amazing fish and other sea life at the aquarium in Boston. There were plenty of jellyfish, sharks, sting rays, turtles, penguins, seals, and more. The variety of fish there is incredible. They even have a mermaid’s purse where you can see a shark embryo grow and eventually hatch!!! The touch tank is another favorite where you can safely touch sting rays and sharks. We easily spent most of the day at this aquarium.
I love jellyfish. The Boston Aquarium has a great collection of jellyfish that always keep me hypnotized.
One of the hidden gems at the New England Aquarium is the shark nursery. They had a handful of shark eggs on display with real live tiny little shark embryos inside. This particular one that I recorded on video below is an epaulette shark embryo that is 3 months old. It was set to hatch 1 month later. Thanks to the special lighting you can really see it move around and feed inside the egg. Most people walked by this display since there is so much more going around elsewhere in the aquarium.
