In addition to his one-year checkup with the veterinary team, we're sure Kukdlaa will get extra treats and rubs today. What is your favorite Kukdlaa memory?

This California scorpionfish is a master of disguise -- can you spot it? This mesmerizing fish uses its camouflage to sneak up on prey and hide from predators. Scorpionfishes are one of the most venomous fish families, so if you see them in the wild, look but don't touch!

This Earth Day, #SheddTheStraw to protect our waters and the animals that call them home. The straw in your drink seems small, but the 500 million single-use plastic straws American use every day add up to a big problem for our oceans, lakes and rivers. Join us in making a difference. Say “no thanks” to single-use plastic straws and embrace reusable or biodegradable alternatives.

Have you ever participated in a polar plunge? A dip in icy water is no challenge for the freshwater burbot, a fish that thrives in the icy waters of the Great Lakes, Europe and Siberia. To survive in this frigid environment and ensure the survival of the species, burbot eggs have evolutionarily adapted to thrive in waters between 34 and 37 degrees Fahrenheit. That's one cool fish!
