Name That Turtle! (By Jan. 30)

The Adventure Aquarium is holding a naming contest for its 3-month-old loggerhead sea turtle. The best entry nets an annual pass or a behind-the-scenes tour for two.


Big fan of turtles? Got a knack for nicknames that stick? Then we've got a deal for you.

The Adventure Aquarium recently welcomed a 3-month-old loggerhead sea turtle hatchling from North Carolina that it will rehabilitate for the next year. Until it's strong enough to be tagged and released, that little fella's going to need a name, and the aquarium is holding a contest to determine what it should be.

The best entry will win the choice of an Adventure Aquarium Annual Pass or a Sea Turtle Adventure for two, and a Turtles: Journey of Survival prize pack, which includes a turtle plush, T-shirt and more.

Nine runners-up will receive two tickets to the exhibit, which runs through March 24.

Entries will only be accepted until Wednesday, Jan. 30. The 10 best, as selected by the Adventure Aquarium husbandry team, will be chosen by Thursday. Voting opens to the public Friday, Feb. 1, and a winner will be declared Feb. 8.
