Did you know butterflies taste with their feet, Hellbender salamanders breathe through their skin and some fish build nests out of bubbles? Tennessee Aquarium visitors will discover fun facts about the kooky behaviors and adaptations of creatures from around the world during “ODDtober.” Throughout the month, guests will get up close to cool critters during special programs in Ranger Rick’s Backyard Safari. The weird and wonderful side of nature will also be revealed during new ODDtober keeper talks and dive programs. Take a walk on the wild side behind the scenes by adding a Backstage Pass tour to get even closer to toothy sharks or the freshwater megafish in the River Giants exhibit.
