The blue spotted jellyfish uses sunlight to feed the algae that lives within its bell and gives it the beautiful color you see here. Jellyfish like this require specific expert care and are thriving at public aquariums which inspire us to care for the life in the ocean. #spottedjellyfish #floridaaquarium #aquarium #fishtank #jellyfish #conservation #saltwateraquarium
Arthur adorou conhecer Flórida Aquarium! Ficava super empolgado a cada animal novo que via ou conhecia!! Valeu muito a pena a visita a Tampa, que fica apenas a 1 horinha de Orlando! 🌊 🐠 🐟 🐧 🦈 🦐 #florida #floridacomcriancas #kidstravel #aquarium #floridaaquarium #viajandocomcrianças #familytrip #vacation

Upside down jellyfish are captivating animal to observe. Resting their bell on the substrate these creatures collect planktonic food and light with their tentacles. As with most jellyfish they require extra care and should only be considered if you are able to accommodate their needs or visit your local aquarium to see if they are on display. #jellyfish #jellyfishes #floridaaquarium #aquarium #fishtank #saltwateraquarium #segrestfarms #segrest #beautiful
Bye bye! 🐙
This beauty had unfortunately had its neck entangled prior to rescue resulting in a narrowing of the throat, enough to now need food chopped up into small pieces. It is being properly cared for at @floridaaquarium. I learned today they try every year to release these back into the wild if they pass a simple feeding test. Unfortunately, this poor baby would not survive due to its feeding needs. I’m usually extremely sceptic when it comes to aquariums and zoos, and the treatment of their animals, but throughout this aquarium there were many many special needs animals that either were paralyzed, missing wings, had permanent damage due to previous trauma, etc. I was relieved by this and their mission to rescue and restore animals lives. #savetheturtles #recycle #banplastic #ocean #rescue #floridaaquarium
Little known fact, sometimes alligators look cute and cuddly. 🐊😍 #floridaaquarium #alligator #notreallycuddly #stillcutetho
Anyone else love going behind the scenes? At the @floridaaquarium you can hang out with all of the penguins, behind the scenes. We learned so much about these African Penguins and Olivia was slightly obsessed. Did you know there are more penguins that live in warmer climates than cooler climates? Another fun fact, Eric and I got married at @floridaaquarium and the penguins walked down the aisle before I did, you could say they were our ring bearers. #dressedtoimpress If you could hang out with one aquarium/zoo animal what would it be?
The Florida Aquarium is a relaxing place. I could watch these jelly fish for hours! #florida #jellyfish #discomedusae #floridaaquarium #sea #sealife #ocean #blue #iphone
Watching the next generation take on the responsibility of caring for the oceans is humbling. We are now seeing a direction in messaging and public awareness to educate them on the importance of conservation. They won’t grow up with a choice but rather become guardians of the future of the planet as well as their own. #conservation #coralrestoration #coralrestorationfoundation #coraconservationinitiative #SegrestCCI #Sustainability #floridaaquarium #floridaaquariumtampa #segrestfarms #segrest
I should post a photo of a fish but instead, this lemur was posing for the photo so here it is. 😂😂😂 Today we went to the Florida aquarium in Tampa. Since it wasn’t crowded, the boys had fun running around and exploring. They were able to see closer and take as long as they want to stare. Videos and photos are in the stories.
Weekends are best spent adventurous 🐧 Penguins may be Edison’s new favorite animal behind Byerly. The penguin biologist also said Edison was the happiest best behaved “young child” she’s ever seen... Well, he has zero to be unhappy with, and Mama ain’t raising no hooligan 💁🏼‍♀️. #southafricanpenguins #floridaaquarium #tpa #tampa #fl #edisoncurrykagan
I was lucky to catch the sun at just the right moment to get these gorgeous scenic pics. Plus some more favorites. Did I mention I want to be a marine biologist? Send me in with the sharks please! @floridaaquarium #floridaaquarium #tampa #florida #stingray #fish #selfie #fishies #shark #grouper #aquarium #bymyself #octopus #stuffedanimal #francis #adventure #alone #idowhatiwant #marine #marinelife #futuremarinebiologist #marinebiology #nerd #marinebiologyshots #amateurphotography #iphonephotography
DYK? While most fish have overlapping scales, boxfish have a carapace made of hexagonal-shaped scales called scutes. This makes their carapace very strong and makes it difficult for predators to eat them. Talk about having tough skin. 🧐😄 #floridaaquarium #boxfish #tough #fish
Another Fluke painting. This one is of Finn, my favorite boy @discoverycove he's soo cute! Its psinted on recycled paper and psinted with acrylic and guache paints #finn #dolphins #artoftheday

Lazy day wandering part 2 - #FloridaAquarium in #Tampa - #Aquarium
Fintastic fan photos! 😁🐟 #floridaaquarium #fanphotos #saturday
By far my favorite invertebrates are the octopodes. Also the correct plural for octopus is either octopuses or octopodes because the word octopus is Greek, so the plural in English would be octopuses and octopodes if you want to stay with the Greek plural, octopi would mean the word has a Latin root which is completely incorrect. So now you know, not octopi, only octopuses or octopodes! Regardless these are some of the most intelligent animals living today, they can change the color and texture of their skin in the blink of an eye, they have a venomous bite to paralyze their prey, and they have eight arms (not tenticals). The only hard part of their body is their parrot-like beak, and that is the limiting factor on how small of an opening they can travel through. I will definitely be doing more posts on these guys but I just wanted to do a brief info dump to start that off for the weekend. This is a Common Octopus (Octopus vulgaris) from the Florida Aquarium in Tampa, FL. It is one of the smaller aquariums I've been to, but it is dense and there are some beautiful tanks they have set up, definitely go check them out if you have the chance! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ #octopus #octopuses #octopodes #greekroots #correctgrammar #creaturesofthedeep #commonoctopus #bluebackground #deepblue #intelligent #invertibrate #softbody #armsnottentacles #motionblur #floridaaquarium #tampa #florida #venomouscreatures #beak #notoctopi #infodump #randomfacts

A year-and-a-half growth on one of our “teenage” staghorn corals at the Aquarium! Needless to say the teenage years can be a little gangly on growth. 🤣 #floridaaquarium #gangly #teenage #coral #staghorncoral
Spent the morning at the Tampa Aquarium. What a great place with amazing critters! With @willard_in_accounting and @bissindw #floridaaquarium #tgif
Strike a pose. Just hanging with the lemurs. #tampa #floridaaquarium #lemur #kingjulian #vacation #travel
If you go to @floridaaquarium and only stay inside the building, you’re missing out! The little outside area is really cute, and there’s this cool buoy wall where you can capture the most Instagram-worthy pics. 📷 #doingitforthegram #lunaelselene #babygirl #toddler #22monthsold #floridaaquarium #buoys #buoywall #tampaattractions #lovefl #abmlifeiscolorful #colorpop #thatsdarling

Sometimes you just have to go on an adventure to the aquarium by yourself and take selfies with fishes. I named my octopus Francis. #floridaaquarium #tampa #florida #stingray #fish #selfie #fishies #shark #grouper #aquarium #bymyself #octopus #stuffedanimal #francis #adventure #alone #idowhatiwant #marine #marinelife #futuremarinebiologist #marinebiology #nerd #marinebiologyshots
Took mom to the Florida Florida Aquarium today. #DontBeJelly #FloridaAquarium #JellyFish #UnderTheSea
When she wears this outfit, she calls herself a “baby bayer,” and it’s the cutest thing I’ve ever heard. 🐻 #lunaelselene #babygirl #babybear #toddler #22monthsold #floridaaquarium #buoys #buoywall #abmlifeiscolorful #colorpop #thatsdarling #thatsdarlingmotherhood

We were lucky enough to do a Penguin Encounter at the @floridaaquarium last week. They’re a lot softer than they look! 🐧 . . . #floridaaquarium #tampa #tampaflorida #tampabay #unlocktampabay #lovefl #exploreflorida #roamflorida #instagram_florida #kings_birds #instabird #bns_birds #penguin #penguins #sunshinestateofmind

This was fun for the kids and funny for us. Couldn’t stop laughing at their reaction to 78 mph winds 😂🥰 . #tampa #tampaflorida #tampafl #floridaaquarium #hurricanewinds #hurricanesimulator
