Vancouver Aquarium shares adorable Easter-themed animal videos (VIDEO)

The animals got an egg-cellent surprise...

The Vancouver Aquarium has released four Easter-themed videos that feature some of the attraction’s most adorable animals.

The Aquarium will host its third annual Easter Scavenger Hunt from Friday, April 19 to Monday, April 22, where guests may learn quirky and curious facts about aquatic creatures and their eggs.

An eggs-pert will take you on the family-friendly Easter Scavenger Hunt through the Aquarium’s galleries – – from the warmth of the Tropics to the cooler but oh-so-colourful British Columbia coast – in search of the answers.

And, once you complete the hunt, you’ll be able to hand in the form to collect a delicious chocolate treat; you’ll also be automatically entered to win a prize.

The Aquarium’s tortoises, sea lions, sea otters, and Goeldi’s monkeys are featured in the recent videos.

Have a look below at the ‘egg-cellent’ Easter surprises.

Then deep dive into the fascinating underwater world as you take in special programs and shows. With more than 50,000 aquatic creatures, there’s so much to see and do!

  • Get up close with a Red-footed tortoise or Ball python at 11:40 a.m. or an African penguin at 2:15 p.m. in the Teck Connections Gallery.
  • Marvel in the extraordinary adaptations of sharks that make them the ultimate ocean predators and guardians during Shark: A 4-D Experience every 30 minutes starting at 11:15 a.m. in the 4-D theatre.
  • Gather round for story time. The Aquarium team and puppet troupe will keep the young and the young-at-heart in stitches during this dynamic and engaging family-friendly program at 10:45 a.m. daily in the Pacific Canada Pavilion.
  • Go behind the scenes and get up close with our sea otters, sea lions or penguins during an Animal Encounter or embark on a Be a Biologist tour.
