So what does a person who spends every weekend for 18 years hanging around the sea otters at the Aquarium of the Pacific and has been the “Otter Pop” to orphan pups do for a vacation? Why he goes up to Monterey Bay and watches wild sea otters for a week, of course.

Hugh's Aquarium Views Video number 12
It looks a campy alien monster out of a 1960s Irwin Allen sci-fi TV show. It’s tentacle-like arms curling in and out to ambush unsuspecting prey. The eerily pulsating membrane of its body announces that its poor victims are being devoured. Yet it’s not science fiction. It’s a creature called a basket star and you can see it in person at the Aquarium of the Pacific.

If ever an animal’s name matched its personality it’s Harpo the sea lion. Harpo has a way of channeling his inner Marx Brother and stamping his own unique style to everything he does. Case in point is how he decided to use the sea lion selfie stick.

Because they are so accessible to the local folks of Long Beach and the surrounding area I like to refer to the green sea turtles that colonize the San Gabriel River as Urban Sea Turtles.
