The four stingrays in the Amazon River Forest had their barbs clipped recently.
Just like fingernails, stingray barbs constantly re-grow. Our Aquarists suit up every year to get in with the rays to trim their barbs.
Did you know? Home to thousands of freshwater aquatic species, the Amazon River is one of the most biodiverse habitats in the world!
Here at the Aquarium, our exhibit has over 60 species of fish, amphibians and reptiles!
Be sure to check back every Friday to find out what’s happening!
