Typically found in estuaries where fresh and salt water combine, this habitat boasts a variety of marine life. Continuing on exploring the local environment, the Mullica River exhibit showcases the creatures found along the Great Bay estuary of the Mullica River, found in New Jersey. The Mid-Atlantic Coastal Zone exhibit homes in on the specific species of the Intertidal shore, and the species that live partly submerged, partly exposed, ever subject to the whim of the fluctuating tides. In Fish of the Mid-Atlantic is one of the larger exhibits at the Aquarium with a 25,000 gallon enclosure.
This tank is home to species that make their home of the New Jersey shore. Heading a bit further from home, the Tropical Rainforest exhibit focuses on plants and animals found in these wet and wild habitats. Animals on display include turtles, rays, and iguanas. Going even farther afield, the Australian Exhibit highlights two animals found in two different habitats found there. In addition to all of these regional focuses, there is one more exhibit that falls outside of these categorizations. Ocean Oddities showcases some of the more unique and unusual creatures found in the ocean deep. Visitors will want to be sure to see this rotating array of curious creatures.
