Marine Life at the Austin Aquarium

If you want to learn about marine life that lives beneath the ocean's surface and reptiles that call a rainforest home, spend time at the Austin Aquarium.

Here are some of the things you can see and do during your visit:

The Giant Pacific Octopus is the world's largest octopus species and it's highly intelligent. This encounter lasts about forty-five minutes, and you can touch the animal as well as give it puzzles and toys to play with. Don't forget your camera. Non-flash photography is allowed!

Feeding the fish is a fun, interactive experience that is one of the most popular attractions at the aquarium. According to the aquarium's website, the staff's goal is to teach visitors how to conserve the animal world. Feeding them helps create a bond with the animals and gain a better understanding of their environment.

The Morning Rounds encounter allows visitors to follow the knowledgeable staff as they feed the animals and check their water levels. Visitor participation varies and may include preparing diets, feeding animals, and helping with equality testing. Scheduling this experience in advance is necessary, and admission to the aquarium is included in the price.

If you're looking for an extra special adventure consider Sleep with the Sharks. This amazing opportunity is suitable for all ages and includes a nocturnal animal tour, shark feeding, morning bird feeding, octopus viewing, and a delicious continental tank-side breakfast.
