Octopus Garden opens at Legoland aquarium

Posted: Updated:

CARLSBAD (CNS) - The Octopus Garden exhibit at Sea Life Aquarium opened Friday, following a weeklong delay caused when an octopus refused to move into its new home.

The squishy creatures are sensitive to water and temperature conditions, so workers adjusted the tanks to make them more amenable to the denizens.

Five separate display tanks in the aquarium on the grounds of Legoland California contain a Giant Pacific Octopus, a Common Octopus, a Zebra Octopus, Pharaoh Cuttlefish and Chambered Nautilus.

The Octopus Garden, named after The Beatles' song, includes an interactive floor projection that reacts when kids move over the floor area, a hide-and-seek octopus game, an octopus memory quiz, an octopus maze, and two new educational presentations.
