What has no teeth, no rib cage, is covered in bony scales and managed to outlive the dinosaurs? The answer is the pallid sturgeon.
But after millions of years of survival, only about 125 of these wild
“dinosaur fish” remain. And if something isn’t done to save this
endangered species, it could vanish forever — all because of what’s
going on at a single dam in Montana.
sturgeon were once abundant along the Missouri River, which flows east
from Montana and south until it empties into the Mississippi River in
Missouri. They swam up it to spawn, and their fertilized eggs developed
as they drifted down the river and through its tributaries. The larvae
turned into fish that could grow up to six feet long, weigh up to 90
pounds and live about as long as the average human…
A new pet store opened near me, and while it has a VERY small fish oriented section, each betta is kept in a separate filtered little container, which makes me extremely happy.
