I used to have 3 peacocks and 3 pea hens which made the males strut their tails. Unfortunately the coyotes and other critters eliminated our little population. They were curious creatures and would fly to the window ledges and peek in. They loved it when my husband played the piano.
Recently, the National Aquarium’s Conservation team welcomed 51 hatchling Diamondback Terrapins from the aquarium’s site at Poplar Island. After passing their Animal Health exams, these tiny turtles have remained under watchful eyes for a few weeks, making sure they are gaining strength and a healthy appetite.
