aquarium in baltimore

I was at the Baltimore aquarium the other day with my friend, and we got to one of the very big tanks of the Amazon region with a very large variety of fish. Next to me there was a little kid with his grandmother and he pointed at a fish saying “look grandma, that fish is so weird, it’s so weird” and she replied, “oh no, honey, it’s not weird, it’s just different from what we’re used to. You can hurt the fish’s feelings that way”.
I thought this was worth mentioning because she said it in such a calming manner, that the kid got the message right away. It made me very happy.

Summary: Hapalochlaena lunulata: the pacific blue-ringed octopus is one of the world’s deadliest creatures. There is no known cure for its toxin, and it is considered extremely dangerous. Ordinarily, this species consumes crab and small fish, but as you know, our specimen is anything but ordinary.

Ocellate river stingray or motoro ray.

We so often envision stingrays as saltwater animals, that it can be rough for many to imagine that there are freshwater stingrays like the motoro. This doesn’t mean the home hobbyist should go out and snatch one up for their own tank. Freshwater rays can be just as sensitive and large growing as their saltwater cousins, and they also come equipped with a stinging barb.
