The Florida Aquarium’s exciting new gallery, MORPH’D, officially opened this summer! With 18 species from around the globe – like the axolotl, paddlefish and chameleon – the gallery immerses guests in the adaptations of some of nature’s most remarkable species. All with the goal of inspiring a deeper connection to nature.
The debut of the MORPH’D gallery marks completion of the first of three phases in The Florida Aquarium’s $40 million expansion plan.
Located in the Aquarium’s new 3,700-square foot special exhibit hall, MORPH’D brings guests on a journey of exploration; introducing a diversity of animals that are perfectly evolved to survive. Featuring curious creatures, interactive exhibits, and multimedia experiences, the gallery serves to encourage learning and spark conservation action.
Other species featured in the new exhibit include epaulette sharks, archerfish, four-eyed fish and bird poop frog and more.
As part of the Aquarium’s expansion, MORPH’D and the new special exhibit hall is the first step in the Aquarium’s transformative journey.
