Octopus Garden NEW At Sea Life Aquarium

My kids love going to the aquarium. Watching sea life swim gracefully in a tank is both mesmerizing and educational. That’s exactly what it’s like going to Sea Life Aquarium in Grapevine. The first time we went my kids were mesmerized and learned so much from the Fin Facts along the wall. Sea Life Aquarium has recently opened a new interactive exhibit, Octopus Garden, and it’s spectacular.

As I watched these cephalopods, I realized that I had never seen an octopus that close before. Between being click happy with my camera and amazed at their sight, I probably could have stayed in that area the whole day. I think the Giant Pacific Octopus liked the attention as he showed off all his suctions for us. Did you know they have 200 suction cups on each tentacle?? That’s just one of the many things I learned about these amazing creatures.
