Octopus Bowl | Hugh  buttonLink

Octopus Bowl

An octopus investigates a football. The latest Hugh's Aquarium Views video

A video of an octopus playing with a football. It’s seemed only appropriate though coincidental that the Aquarium of the Pacific’s giant Pacific octopus checked out a football the same week that the Rams Football Team announces its return to Los Angeles.

The grays are still going strong! A bunch of southbound grays have been seen daily, and sometimes, they are not travelling alone. Many of the grays we have been seeing lately are in small groups, which make the sightings quite exciting

First Whales of the New Year | Julien  buttonLink

First Whales of the New Year

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday season. We have already started 2016 out strong with lots and lots of whales. The gray whale migration is going strong and at the moment, we have had 338 whales that have been counted travelling south to Mexico past Palos Verdes where the census takes place. Out of these whales, three of them have been counted at calves. I was so fortunate to go out on the 9 AM whale watch tour this past Sunday and there was so much life out there!

My How that Shark and Turtle Have Grown | Hugh  buttonLink

My How that Shark and Turtle Have Grown

When I get nostalgic about the critters I worked with during the Aquarium of the Pacific’s Grand Opening year in 1998 and still hang around with today I think of not only seals and otters but also sea turtles and sharks.

Killer Whales Make an Appearance! | Julien  buttonLink

Killer Whales Make an Appearance!

On Thursday November 19, we were graced with the presence of the infamous CA51 Bigg’s killer whale pod. The whale watch that day was a little unusual since the first trip out that day had a very quiet ocean with not much wildlife present, while the second trip came upon four very tall, black dorsal fins of the ‘black and whites’. Also in strange animal news, a giant oarfish found on the shore in Palos Verdes!
