Take a bite out of science and discover Bay predators at Aquarium of the Bay. Find out what’s on the menu as we explore some of the Bay’s most fascinating predators. From keen river otters, to clever octopuses, and awe-inspiring sharks, these predators are a force to be reckoned with.
From April 8-22, become a scientist with hands-on science experiments and activities, all while learning about what it takes to be a predator.
April 8-12: Sharks rule the water and command the food web. Find out how sharks hunt, what they like to eat, and how we learn about them with activities like shark tagging, jaw-some animal feedings, and Jurassic shark!
April 13-17: River otters may look cute and cuddly, but don’t let their furry exterior fool you. Join us for otterly fantastic activities, like a chance to make your own watershed or dress like an otter, all while learning about their keen hunting skills and adaptations that let them rule the rivers.
April 18-23: This predator has brains and brawn! Learn about one of the most intelligent and fascinating inhabitants of our local waters, the octopus! While not a top predator, this mesopredator plays a big role in the food web. Join us for naturalist-led “octopus talks,” special presentations, and hands-on activities, like daily squid dissections in the Bay Lab.
