Ocean Journey / Boneless Beauties

Despite their drastically different appearances, the animals in this dimly lit gallery share one common trait - the lack of a backbone. The Aquarium showcases some of the most fascinating and bizarre animals on earth, including the wondrous, Giant Pacific Octopus, the hovering, squid-like Cuttlefish and those spineless, brainless wonders: the electrifying jellyfish. These mysterious creatures pulsate, dance and draw visitors into their spell.

In addition, the gallery features a unique, domed tank, where guests can observe the intriguing lifestyles of several giant Japanese spider crabs.
