Nature by Numbers at Canada's Largest Indoor Aquarium

 

New SWARM exhibit at Ripley's Aquarium of Canada proves there is strength in numbers

TORONTO, May 19, 2016 /CNW/ - A new exhibit at Ripley's Aquarium of Canada gives credence to the old adage, if you can't beat them - join them.  Opening today, SWARM is a collection of animal 'mobs', showcased through interesting facts, touch tanks and interactive displays.

From silvery Lookdowns and colourful Halloween Crabs to Coral Catfish and Blue Blubber Jellyfish, SWARM features over 1,000 new animals.  Meet the Clean Team at the Scarlet Cleaner Shrimp tank, and let these omnivorous scavengers get to work on ridding your hands and nails of dead skin.  Or, take a peek at the Flashlight Fish and watch how these nocturnal creatures glow in the dark.

The 2,300 square foot exhibit is the first rotating gallery to join Ripley's since the Aquarium opened in 2013.  Ripley's Aquarium of Canada is open 9am daily, 365 days a year, including this Victoria Day long weekend.
