Drop-In to MLML Open House: So Many Different Kinds of Fishes!

Explore the Ichthyology (FISH) Lab for neat fishes!

Make sure to stop by the Ichthyology Lab during Open House and see the different kinds of fishes we have in Monterey Bay.  They have many skeletons of fish – be sure to examine the teeth of the fishes and see how their shape is adapted to eating different kinds of food.  The wolf eel above can eat abalone and use its large mouth to swallow them!

The Pirate Puffer fish does not actually exist, but if it did it would have a wooden fin!

MLML Open House is Saturday, April 30 & Sunday, May 1.
