Animal Update - November 9

Published November 09, 2012

Between our Baltimore and Washington, DC, venues, more than 17,500 animals representing 900 species call the National Aquarium home. There are constant changes, additions, and more going on behind the scenes that our guests may not notice during their visit. We want to share these fun updates with our community so we're bringing them to you in our weekly Animal Update posts!

Check our blog every Friday to find out what's going on... here's what's new this week!

Baby Burrfish

We've added three tiny striped burrfish to our Coastal Beach gallery in the Maryland: Mountains to the Sea exhibit!

These fish usually grow to 10 inches long but, because the new ones we've added are juveniles, they are closer to 2-4 inches!
