From the lakes, ponds, and rivers that surround the places we live, peer in on the creatures with which we share these watery realms.
One of the harshest areas to live in the ocean, the Intertidal Zone is home only to those species that can endure the regular pounding of waves and the climate changes from the tidal highs and lows. These areas contain some of the most diverse, expansive, and beautiful animals on earth.
Like the Intertidal Zone, the ocean shores have dwellers that are greatly affected by the changing tides and frequent beach visitors. See some familiar crawling creatures and gaze upon a fish that walks on the sea floor!
From snake-like eels to creatures with eight arms or hard shells, the Near Shore Zone features a lot of our most recognizable species.
As the ocean water gets deeper, more unusual creatures can be found. Featuring unusual shapes, colors, and sizes, life in the Offshore Zone is anything but boring and predictable.
Get ready for an unforgettable encounter, and bring your camera!
