Sea Life

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.
