Cool news on the front of the Times-Dispatch today about Maymont adding a new shark exhibit. Colleen Curran reported that “the new sharks at Maymont are chain catsharks, due to the interesting snake-skin-type pattern on their backs. They can typically be found in the Chesapeake Bay, as well as up an down the Atlantic Coast.”

Maymont acquired two of the juvenile (about 3 months old) chain catsharks, but they are currently in quarantine and won’t go on view to the public until this Thursday (March 22nd). So, tell the kids they have to wait a couple of days!
