The female Wolf eel at Birch Aquarium a few hours before producing eggs

The Wolf eels at th Aquarium are a devoted pair who spend much of their time side by side in a cave. These lovable but serilously ugly fish can produce over a thousand eggs. Our female went into labor and here is a short video of her a few hours before giving birth.

I am happy to say that she is now happily guarding a large ball of eggs!
