Discover 3 Predators with Science Bites at the Aquarium of the Bay
Become a scientist during April's Science Bites activities at the Aquarium of the Bay. Kids and kids at heart can get hands-on with the Aquarium's top predators through fun and educational activities, experiments, and interactive presentations. From keen river otters to clever octopuses and awe-inspiring sharks, these predators are a force to be reckoned with.
Science Bites programming runs April 8 to April 23, 2017. Highlight activities include:
Sharks, April 8 - 12Sharks rule the water and command the food web. Find out how sharks hunt, what they like to eat, and how we learn about them with activities like Shark Tagging, Jaw-some Animal Feedings, and Jurassic Shark.
River Otters, April 13 - 17River otters may look cute and cuddly, but don't let their furry exterior fool you. Learn more about their keen hunting skills and adaptations that let them rule the rivers through otter-ly fantastic activities, like a chance to make your own watershed or dress like an otter.
Octopus, April 18 - 23This predator has brains and brawn! Learn about one of the most intelligent and fascinating inhabitants of our local waters, the octopus. While not a top predator, this meso-predator plays a big role in the food web. Join the naturalist-led octopus talks, special presentations, and hands-on activities like daily squid dissections in the Bay Lab.
Science Bites programming is available with your paid general admission. For more information, including Aquarium hours and activity schedules, and to purchase tickets, please visit the Aquarium of the Bay online.
