The re-energized focus on Long Island Sound's story is obvious in the colorfully redesigned main hall, which has been renamed Newman's Own Hall in celebration of a $1.2 million grant from Newman's Own Foundation."

6 Animals More Excited for Spring than You

Happy first day of spring! In true Buzzfeed style, we’re counting down six animals from around The Maritime Aquarium who are SO over winter and ready to catch a bout of spring fever.

1. Suzie, all ready to start soaking up some sun.

Harbor seal and professional bask-er.

2. This moray eel, who’s all smiles for spring.

Or should we say, rEELy excited for spring.

3.  And this chevron tang who just can’t contain its excitement.


4. This elated diamondback terrapin.

When was the last time you were this excited about…anything?!

5. A White’s tree frog who’s coyly content.

“Maybe if I play hard to get, spring will come to me!” Good plan, Mr. White.

6. And this meerkat who finally is coming out of hiding from this ridiculous winter.

Dear Polar Vortex, is it safe to come out yet? Please be over. Sincerely, Meerkat.
