Monday, Oct. 8, is World Octopus Day, and the Aquarium of Niagara is ready to celebrate! Join in for live enrichment sessions with giant Pacific octopus Babs.
Guests can enjoy this special event and encounter firsthand what Babs' trainers do with her during their daily sessions. They will have the chance to talk to the trainers as they work with her and ask any questions you may have.
What's the difference between arms and tentacles? Are octopus really that intelligent? How did you train her to do that?
"We have very a trusting relationship with Babs and we're excited to educate guests on how amazing and intelligent octopus really are," said Lauran Jozik, supervisor of fish, invertebrates and birds.
Live enrichment sessions begin at 11:45 a.m. and 1 p.m. in Conservation Cove. The event is included with general admission. The venue is located at 701 Whirlpool St., Niagara Falls.
