Freshwater Zone - featuring creatures from lakes, ponds, and rivers
Intertidal Zone - One of the harshest ocean areas to live in, this zone contains some of the most diverse, expansive, and beautiful animals on earth.
Shore Zone - the ocean shores have dwellers that are greatly affected by the changing tides and frequent beach visitors. Here you can see some familiar crawling creatures and even a fish that walks on the sea floor!
