There are literally thousands of animals at the Aquarium, and we think they're all pretty eye-catching in their own way. But some species tend to tug on those eyeballs more than others. So when you're planning your visit to the Aquarium (ooh, ooh! here are some handy visiting tips), be sure to add these animals to your must-see list.

2. Sea turtles
|There are three species in the Giant Ocean Tank: Kemp's ridley, loggerhead and green sea turtles.|
Loggerhead (foreground) and green (Myrtle in the background) here, bonus if you get all three in one picture!
|Her name is Elvira and she's the most marveled-at resident of the Northern Waters gallery. |
Especially when she does stuff like this.
4. Harbor seals
|These blubbery athletes are the first animals you'll see on the Aquarium's Front Plaza.|
Don't miss a training session for a chance to see their smarts on display.
|More than 80 birds, three species and a whole lot of squawking happening in the Penguin Exhibit|
6. Sea lions
|These two. So much spunk.|
7. Moon jellies
|Brainless blobs that happen to be incredibly photogenic|
8. Cownose rays
|So many smiles in The Trust Family Foundation Shark and Ray Touch Tank|
|Even as tropical fish go, this guy is a show stopper.|
|Teensy animals can be eye-catching, too—if you know where to look. Look for these vibrant|
amphibians in the Amazon Rainforest exhibits.
