Spooky and Spectacular Named Creatures

5 Spooky and Spectacularly-Named Creatures


Halloween is “creeping” upon us and what better way to get ready for Georgia A-SCARY-Um than to highlight some of our most spookily-named critters?


Creepy Crawler of the Deep

What can grow up to 12-feet across, resembles a spider and prefers to inhabit the dark, deep parts of the ocean? That would be our Japanese spider crabs! Learn more here.


Ghost of the Ocean?

Our moon jellies can easily resemble a ghostly figure, with their translucent and whitish color! However, be careful not to mistake them for a floating plastic bag in the ocean. Learn more here.


Striped and Mysterious

While longfin batfish can be found normally lurking in coastal lagoons, you’ll see these yellowish and black, circular and striped fish here in the deep waters of our Ocean Voyager and Tropical Diver galleries. Learn more here.
