Our blue planet is chock full of amazing animals—from vibrant mandarinfish to lithe fur seals to sleek sharks. But during this time of year we like to focus on the mysterious, frightening and downright creepy animals (all 100-percent amazing, of course) that you'll find at the Aquarium.
Followers on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google + and Instagram) have been seeing some pictures of the creepiest of the creepy in the weeks leading up to Halloween. Here's a round-up of those impressive animals, all in one place. Some were chosen for their looks, some for their fierce reputation, some just scream Halloween. Scroll and enjoy!
