Monterey Bay’s Amazing Visitor


 

In the early morning hours of this, the first day of April, a rare visitor to Monterey Bay invited himself into one of the open sea exhibits of the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Affectionately, dubbed “Artie”, by the volunteer staff who arrived early this morning to opened the aquarium, was truly a sight to behold.

We haven’t been treated to such a magnificent sight as this in the entire 20 years I’ve been on staff here. said long time volunteer Harold Mackleroy.  

It is anticipated Artie will remain here throughout the day before he moves on to parts unknown. So everyone who can, is encouraged to join the Aquarium and the entire Monterey Bay community in welcoming this elegant visitor to the area and share with them  this once in a lifetime event.

    I was thinking the creature is from loch Nesselrode. Don’t know how it got to the ocean though.
