The Age of E-quarium Issue Date: 03-12-2000

Cool Spots imageDive into the E-quarium to become an instant junior marine biologist! At www.montereybayaquarium.org, the Monterey Bay Aquarium Web site, 3-D panoramas and live camera action bring the ocean to life like you've never seen. Get on your scuba gear and head into the depths by clicking on the Learning Center and Kids' E-Q for instant access to all the exhibits. Swim through a kelp forest and scope out the kelp cam, or sink your head in a tidal pool and come nose-to-nose with a Monkeyface eel. You can comb the shores or dive in on a submarine voyage to deep underwater canyons. Giggle at the hijinks on the otter cam or slime around on the muddy ocean floor with some mud-sucking sea cucumbers. It's cute, ugly, beautiful and scientific. Have a swimmingly good time at Monterey Bay's amazing E-quarium.

Chasing the 60-foot Giant Squid Issue Date: 03-30-1997

Cool Spots imageGiant squid attacked Captain Nemo's submarine in Jules Verne's book 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. But scientists believe that these creatures are not as fearsome as the stories lead us to believe. The truth is we don't know because we have never captured a live giant squid. In fact, only in the last year have scientists figured out where they may be able to find Architeuthis (ark-ee-TOO-this) - that's Greek for Chief Squid. The Smithsonian Institute has put together a truly monstrous World Wide Web site where you can learn everything there is to know about squids of all kinds, the scientists who study squids, and their expedition to New Zealand to try to see one of these enormous sea creatures. You can learn all about the "Expedition into the Depths of the Last Frontier" and the cool technology the scientists may use to actually catch one of these Cephalopods on film. So grab your scuba tank and head over to http://seawifs.gsfc.nasa.gov/squid.html where you can find out more about this gigantic and elusive creature.
