National Aquarium Behind The Scenes

I’ve encountered this cowfish thanks to an enthusiastic guide called Allan, who takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour of the National Aquarium in Baltimore. After our visit to the sick bay, he leads us beneath a complex system of pipes and tubing, the filtration system, into a brightly lit surgery center that functions mostly as an autopsy room. “We never just wonder what happened to an animal here,” he explains. “We dissect it to see what we can learn about the death.”
