Schuster: "You weren't going to eat that crab, right? RIGHT?!"

Oswald: "Oh no, I was done. Definitely wasn't going to eat any more of it. Here, all yours."

Otters aren't above a little extortion every now and then--especially if fresh rock crab is involved.

Did any of you happen to see these “tourists” in Newport’s Yaquina Bay yesterday? Small pods of orca whales are transient visitors to our area, moving up and down the coast in pursuit of prey. These animals were likely on the hunt for seals and sea lions. Video credit: Aquarium guest Kelly

The strawberry anemone reproduces using a method called “longitudinal division.” Put simply, the animal clones itself repeatedly, covering a square meter or more. As a result, you often find strawberry anemones in large clusters with all of the animals being descendants of one original anemone!

This #ThrowbackThursday, we’re getting down to details. The “rockwork” at OCAq is actually fiberglass fabricated from molds taken of real outcrops at Otter Rock, just north of Newport.
