The Tale of the Horseshoe Crab
Come meet a live horseshoe crab and discover what makes them such fascinating creatures. These "living fossils" are in a class of their own (taxonomically speaking) and are not true crabs at all! Find out how many eyes they have, how they eat, and learn why they are important to migratory shore bird populations and human health.

The Fishes No One Sees
Have you ever gone fishing in the Gulf of Mexico? I bet you caught some Red Snapper or a grouper, but do you know how many other crazy-looking fish are out there? Come by to see some of these different types of fish, learn where they live, and why they will never bite your hook!
