Animal Update: Lookdowns

Published January 30, 2015

Ten lookdown fish have recently been added to our Maryland: Mountains to the Sea exhibit!


Lookdown fish inhabit the shallow coastal waters of the Western Atlantic Ocean. They are a naturally schooling species! 


The lookdown’s slim shape allows it to dash after prey and expertly escape predators. 

Check back on Fridays for more behind-the-scenes updates!
