During our tour of the Crary Science Building, we were able to visit the aquarium facilities used for the research of sea organisms.  Amazingly, there was one small tank set-up for people to touch some of the sea creatures that were retrieved from McMurdo Sound!  The temperature of the water was very cold, near -2 degrees Celsius.

We were so fascinated by the organisms that it was hard to pull us away.
