Today at the Aquarium of the Pacific, we saw things I’ve never seen in real life before.
We saw chambered nautiluses (or chambered nautili) swimming all over the place.
We saw a California king crab.
And we saw a giant isopod! I never imagined I’d get to see one of these alive. I’ve been fascinated by them ever since I first read about them — they’re huge and they look like sow bugs. It was amazing.
They were all in the Wonders of the Deep exhibit.
