The Aquarium got a visit from some cool (literally) birds as I fed some bat rays and collected plankton straight from the ocean! This doesn’t happen much at all, so I was quite excited.

The reticulate whiptail ray in Shark Lagoon indulges in the best food daily. To keep her from getting fat, her portions are controlled but that does not stop her from trying to eat her roommates’ leftovers.

What was it like for me to volunteer two days in a row? Why was Young Professionals Night such a blast to participate in? Also, find out about the new creature lurking in our Shark Lagoon and read about my one of many “happy spurts”!

A New Addition to the Shark Lagoon Family!
We have a new addition to the Shark Lagoon family, a bonnethead shark. These sharks have a head shape similar to a hammerhead. It is so cute! Our newest addition is about 46 centimeters (18 inches) long on its way to a length of about 0.7-1 m (2.3-3.3 ft.). It is adjusting well to its new home and eating well on a diet of restaurant quality seafood.
