CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The Texas State Aquarium has re-opened its newly remodeled Near Shore Exhibit just in time for Spring Break.

The exhibit features animals that can all be found near the Coastal Bend shore line, from the back marshes with alligators to massive hermit crabs on the beach.

The re-modeled exhibit will also have birds of the Coastal Bend flying above, interacting with visitors.

The full exhibit will be opened later this Spring.

This is a big week for the aquarium with lots of Sprig Break visitors coming through. The aquarium has extended hours through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
