This harbor seal at Atlantis Marine World Aquarium on East Main Street in Riverhead shows his love for his favorite football team in anticipation of the big Jets vs. Steelers game 6:30 p.m. Sunday night.

Animal paintings from the aquarium’s artists — harbor and gray seals, California sea lions and African penguins — is available in the Atlantis gift shop.

“Atlantis Marine World is thrilled to highlight our great animal care and enrichment program,” said Aquarium curator Joe Yaiullo. “Art can be a valuable form of enrichment, with all paints used non-toxic and washable. Some of our animals use a paintbrush while others paint with their feet or nose.”

Sunday’s game will decide which team goes on to the 45th Super Bowl at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Post a comment to tell News-Review readers where you plan to watch it.
