When nature is stranger than fiction

Celebrate the weird and wonderful side of nature all month long in ODDtober! Our experts are ready to entertain and educate guests about Aquarium animals with features, abilities, and behaviors even stranger than any legend or myth surrounding them. Alongside our daily Extraordinary Experiences, eight new programs will get guests up close to some not-so-creepy creatures that are way too cool to be scary.
