This week we took a ride out to Riverhead, Long Island to visit the Long Island Aquarium and Exhibition Center
(formerly called Atlantis Marine World Aquarium).

It is the home of lots of terrific, well lit, clean tanks filled with beautiful and amazing fish.  It is also the home to African Penguins, sea lions, seals, otters and four Japanese Macaques (snow monkeys).  The two older male snow monkeys, Pico and Juraco lived at the Central Park Zoo  and moved to a special new home which was built for them seven years ago. They were joined this year by two younger snow monkeys, Zeppy and Oz, who also lived at the Central Park Zoo.  It was great to see our little guys again. They all are looking great and seem to be enjoying the good life.

Enjoying this very short video of the Flamboyant Cuttlefish that we saw chowing down on some food. Be amazed at the tentacled-like projections that come from its mouth to grab the food.
