Love is in the water

Love is in the water at the New England Aquarium. And it's not just because it's Valentine's Day. In fact, there are happy couples throughout the exhibits! There's Isaac and Ursula, the parents of fur seal pups Flaherty and Kit. There are the protective sergeant majors and many other species of fish in the Giant Ocean Tank. And there are smitten penguins all over their exhibit.

Since we'll take any excuse to share some sappy moments, may we present a few happy couples: the garden eels and clownfish.

And since red and pink are the banner colors of this saccharine holiday, check out some of the unusual Valentine-colored animals throughout the Aquarium.

The Boston Globe came by to check on some of the sweethearts around the Aquarium. Come see for yourself! We're open and love is truly in the water here at the New England Aquarium.
