The Aquarium's quarantine room is currently just a little bit cuter thanks to a group of baby cuttlefish. Measuring about an inch long, each cuttle is between five and six months old. According to Aquarist Sharyl Crossley, the babies will double in size before being placed on exhibit.
“At this point, they’re eating pretty much anything, so long as it’s the right size,” Crossley says. “They are taking cut seafood like shrimp and clam and capelin, but if it’s too big, they won’t go for it," says Crossley.
While these cuttlefish came to the Aquarium from a partner facility, they are the offspring of adult cuttles that also once lived here.
