Puddingwife Wrasse in Atlantic Coral Reef!
A puddingwife wrasse has been added to our Atlantic Coral Reef exhibit!
The puddingwife wrasse is native to the reefs of the western Atlantic (from North Carolina to Trinidad and Tobago).
This species prefers the shallow areas of the reef, where it can easily feed on sea urchins, crustaceans and brittle stars.
According to the IUCN Red List, the puddingwife is a fairly abundant species!
Be sure to check back every Friday to find out what’s happening!
