Birch Aquarium’s Oddities: Hidden Heroes of the Scripps Collection is now open to the public! Oddities is a comic book inspired exhibit, created in partnership with the team from the Scripps Oceanographic Collections, where millions of specimens allow scientists to understand some of the amazing adaptations marine creatures have developed to survive. From super vision and invisibility to protective armor and the ability to create electricity to zap prey, real marine creatures do amazing things every day that stretch even the wildest imagination. The exhibit includes examples of some of the most unique creatures from all depths and highlights how they have inspired everything from cinema and pop culture to medicine and engineering. Guests will learn what it takes to collect scientific samples and have the opportunity to test out some of these unique adaptations through creature cosplay
