Hugh's Aquarium Views Video Number 33

If you have ever attended a Seals & Sea Lions show at the Aquarium of the Pacific you’ve probably heard the term galumphing as a description of how a harbor seal moves on land. In this week’s video I thought I’d give everyone a close up, slow motion view of what the term is describing.

Sea Turtle Photo Identification Results | Hugh

Sea Turtle Photo Identification Results

Hugh's Aquarium Views Number 31

Since 2008 when the Aquarium’s vet, Dr. Lance Adams, first introduced us to the sea turtles of the San Gabriel River, my wife Pam and I have been taking field notes and photos of these unexpected urban residents. The photos were used in a photo identification study project led by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The results were presented this year as a scientific poster at the International Sea Turtle Symposium, a gathering of sea turtle scientists and researchers from around the world.

There are just a few animals at the Aquarium of the Pacific that can cause me to have an affectionate emotional response when I look deep into their eyes; sea otters, sea lions, penguins and flamboyant cuttlefish.

Target-Training a Shark | Hugh

Target-Training a Shark

Training a shark to participate in its own husbandry care.

How do you get a nearly 8 foot long free swimming shark out of the water for a checkup? With a sea lion or sea otter the animal can be trained to get into a transport kennel when asked. Nicky, an Aquarium of the Pacific aquarist, decided to train Fern the Zebra Shark to willingly swim onto a transport stretcher using the same training techniques used to train marine mammals.
