Penguins' Rock Cam

The Tennessee Aquarium’s gentoo and macaroni penguins are busy birds. Check in on their playful antics any time you could use a little “penguin break.” Throughout the year, you’ll witness courtship, nest building, rearing young and molting at the Aquarium.

Watch times suggested by keepers: Keepers are likely to be seen working inside the penguin habitat between 8:30 - 10:30 am. An afternoon feeding typically happens around 3:00 pm.

River Otter Falls Cam

Because much of an otter’s life is scent-driven, you will frequently see the Aquarium’s otters playing a game of hide-and-smell. The animals will scent mark their favorite locations and Aquarium experts will occasionally introduce treats and new scents for the otters to discover.

Thanks to support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA, you can take a virtual dive into the Tennessee Aquarium’s Secret Reef exhibit. This saltwater exhibit, home to thousands of colorful reef fish, big, toothy sharks and a rescued green sea turtle, is designed to model the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary.
