At the Long Island Aquarium, interactive adventure is part of the fun! That’s especially true at our Touch Tank. Most of all, it gives children – and anyone young at heart – the chance to have a hands-on encounter with some of our residents, including sea stars, clams, whelks, hermit crabs, and horseshoe crabs.
Each sea star has hundreds of tiny tube feet that allow it to hold fast against the pounding surf
The horseshoe crab is a living fossil. It has remained unchanged for 200 million years!
