New exhibit at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada showcases the world’s most Curious Creatures

Believe it or Not. On a repurposed junk boat with a skeleton crew, Robert Ripley set out to uncover the world’s most unusual, awe-inspiring creatures and artifacts from around the globe. And now, guests can walk in the footsteps of this modern-day Marco Polo at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada’s new Curious Creatures exhibit.

As guests step inside the room inspired by Ripley’s Mon Lei junk boat, they’ll be immersed in the iconic explorer’s world. The carefully curated collection includes some of Ripley’s most acclaimed finds from across the globe such as marine animals and artifacts from China, the Caribbean, Australia, Indonesia and California.

From Frogfish to Walking Batfish, species of isopods that date back 160 million years, and glow in the dark Flashlight Fish, Curious Creatures features animals never-before seen in Canada. At one of the many interactive displays, guests can take a Shrunken Head Selfie, or test their skills against the remarkably powerful Peacock Mantis Shrimp – with a punch as fast as a .22 calibre bullet.

Just in time for March Break, Curious Creatures will open to the public at 9am on March 2nd and is complimentary with the price of admission. For more information, visit or call 647-351-FISH (3474).
