Tropical Currents Aquarium features 6 unique salt water environments and features fish from around the world. One exhibit currently holds a unique underwater invertabrate called the cuttlefish, also referred to as “the chameleon of the sea” due to its ability to alter its body color to blend in to the surrounding environment. Cuttlefish are marine animals of the order Sepiida. They belong to the class Cephalopoda, which also includes squid, octopuses, and nautiluses. Cuttlefish have a unique internal shell, the cuttlebone, which provides buoyancy.
The zoo participates in the Seafood Watch sustainable seafood program and guests can learn all about making the right choices in this underwater adventure.
