Ripley’s Aquarium Presents SWARM a New Interactive Exhibit

Samantha Norton's avatar By Samantha Norton Follow me on Google+

Ripley’s Aquarium has recently opened “SWARM™,” a brand-new, hands-on, highly interactive exhibit.  Featured displays include a schooling fish exhibit where you can crawl underneath and pop up in the middle and an interactive “doctor fish” exhibit where you can immerse your hands only to be swarmed by hundreds of fish that cling and feed on your loose skin.  You will also see Halloween crabs, American eels, Blubber jellyfish and much more!

In the SWARM™  exhibit, you can discover and unlock the mysteries of how and why thousands of animals dynamically coordinate their actions into a single, overwhelming force to create “super-organisms.”  Many swarms may appear to be remarkably similar, but a closer look will reveal that they are governed by drastically different motives and mechanisms. 

For a limited time only, Ripley's Aquarium showcases the exciting world of swarms, and as Aquarium visitors will learn, humans are not the only creatures that swarm together!

SWARM™ is located in a special area inside Ripley’s Aquarium and is included in the regular price of admission for all Aquarium guests.

The Aquarium, located at Broadway at the Beach, is open 365 days a year.

High resolution photos are available.
