Good morning Seaside!
Seaside Aquarium
Today's beach find: While walking along the drift line we found this large mass of eggs! The mass is just a little smaller than a volleyball. We picked them up and put them into a holding tank full of fresh saltwater and to our surprise the eggs started hatching!! Judging by the size and color of the eggs, we think they may be from a lingcod. We will see!!

Seaside Aquarium Recovers 2nd Live Sea Turtle. A female Olive Ridley sea turtle was discovered just north of Oysterville on the Longbeach Peninsula, this morning (1.5.15). Cold, but still responsive, staff from the Seaside Aquarium quickly helped recover the animal and get it stabilized. Once the turtle arrived at the Aquarium staff used blankets to keep her warm. Though the turtle is currently alive, it is hard to tell if the turtle had received any life threatening injuries while coming through the heavy surf. The turtle is currently on its way to the Seattle Aquarium, courtesy Laura Todd,with Oregon Fish and Wildlife. Seattle Aquarium will continue the rehabilitation process and if all goes well they will be able to transfer her down to California where she will be released.

Turtle Update: Turns out our little sea turtle was a 42 inch, female, Olive Ridley Sea Turtle ( Lepidochelys olivacea). She is doing well and the wonderful team at the Oregon Coast Aquarium say that she is quite active. A big thanks to all that helped us with this amazing animal!!

Two very unique visitors came through the Seaside Aquarium in the last two days! A Brown Booby was found on the shore in Manzanita. This bird is usually found in Southern California. The other warm water visitor was a Loggerhead Sea Turtle.

Touch Tank Action! Eating a mussel isn't as easy as it looks. Or is it? The sea star uses its tube feet to hold the mussel's shell open while the sea star sticks its stomach into the shell and digests the mussel.

The calm before the storm... This morning the beach was quite delightful, excellent for beach combing. We noticed more burrowing sea cucumbers unearthed by the EXTREMELY large surf. Beach combing is always best just after a big storm, if you find something interesting, let us know! Good luck and stay safe!
