Seattle Aquarium cute couples alert!

Seattle Aquarium cute couples alert!

We may have been thwarted in our attempt at an octopus blind date this year, but there are still some very charming “couples” on exhibit at the Seattle Aquarium.

Our tufted puffins are lovebirds!

We have a new bonded bird pair in our alcid exhibit! Green Band tufted puffin (female), also known as Gertie, and Purple Band tufted puffin (male) have paired up. Both animals hatched here at the Aquarium, two years ago in July 2014.
