Animal Update - September 21

Published September 21, 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!

Green wing doves in Animal Planet Australia: Wild Extremes

We've introduced green wing doves to our Animal Planet Australia: Wild Extremes exhibit this week.

Our green wing dove and her chicks!

 Our dove has imprinted on humans and so she is much friendlier and less easily spooked than the rest of our dove population. They can easily be seen roaming our exhibit!

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