Starting this Saturday, Oct. 6 visitors to the Florida Aquarium can see a new exhibit — Heart of the Sea. No, it's not from Titanic — that's the Heart of the Ocean. What the Florida Aquarium has is way cooler: a 100,000-gallon tank with more than 400 sea creatures.
Marine life in Heart of the Sea includes bonnethead sharks, a nurse shark, southern stingrays, two endangered sea turtles, goliath grouper, tarpon, Spanish hogfish, rooster hogfish, squirrelfish, grunts and... you know what? You're gonna have to go see it to see 'em all.
Plus, the Florida Aquarium has set up cameras for better views and will have ways for people to interact with the marine life, including SCUBA diving and other animal encounters.
