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.
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.
Join us for hands-on activities, special talks and opportunities to learn more about the care and feeding of the Aquarium's fish, birds, tide pool animals and marine mammals during Winter Fishtival! Each day we'll highlight a different sea animal and activity. Today the featured animal is the puffin. Here are some fun and interesting facts about puffins.
