moon jelly

They’ve inhabited the planet during the dawn of the dinosaurs and maybe even before then as well! Get up close to juvenile horseshoe crabs that are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and get hands-on with moon jellies that may be spineless but have survived the test of time (several hundred million years, in fact!). Plus, check out our collection of ancient artifacts to discover where fossils come from and how they were made.

You won’t get any closer to dinosaurs than this…or will you?

Up Close with Living Fossils is free for Aquarium members or with admission.
