Animal Updates - March 9

Published March 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 WATERlog blog every Friday to find out what's going on - here's what's happening this week!

Bearded Dragon Babies Baby Bearded Dragons have been hatched after being incubated by our herpetology staff.

These babies will be cared for in our backup spaces and will not be on exhibit. Guest, however, can enjoy seeing adult Bearded Dragons in our Animal Planet Australia: Wild Extremes exhibit.

Young Banggai Cardinalfish Young Banggai Cardinalfish have been added to the Adapting exhibit. These fish range from three weeks to a few months old. As the fish grow and eventually outgrow the Adapting tank, they will be moved to our Pacific Coral Reef exhibit.

Be sure to check back every Friday to find out what's happening!
