Horseshoe Crab Culture Lab

Follow along as we seek insights into horseshoe crabs, a favored marine creature with great environmental importance! Our new “Horseshoe Crab Culture Lab” will allow us to investigate the creatures’ physical processes, food preferences, breeding behaviors and more. A lab window lets Aquarium guests check out the work, especially following along as tiny young horseshoe crabs molt their exoskeletons to grow!
