We are saddened to announce Kevin, our Giant Pacific Octopus has passed away. Kevin had reached maturity which sadly brought with it a natural end to his life cycle. He was closely monitored by our aquarist team during what is formally known as senescence. During this process an octopus will stop caring for itself, reduce food intake, and slow down general day to day activity. Our team are heartbroken to say goodbye to Kevin, and we’ve no doubt that our Annual Pass holders, guests and school visitors will be too.
We have replaced our daily octopus talk with a Coral Cave talk and feed at 12.30pm each day. During the talk we will showcase Pufferfish, Rabbitfish, Regal Tangs and more.
Below is a collection of pictures of Kevin to commemorate him by.
