Discovery Center - Pufferfish

PUFFERFISH

Meet the puffers! Members of the pufferfish family can change their shape dramatically. When they are alarmed, they take in water or air and inflate themselves to avoid predators!

Discovery Center - Horseshoe Crab

HORSESHOE CRABS

Horseshoe crabs are not true crabs. They are more closely related to spiders and scorpions! Horseshoe crabs lay their eggs on beaches, have copper-based blue blood that is used by scientists to diagnose diseases, and are considered living fossils as they have been on Earth for over 200 million years!
