Our Animal of the Week is the knobtail gecko! These geckos are identified by their short bodies, large heads, small legs, and short, carrot-shaped tails that often end in a small knob.

Our Animal of the Week is the spinecheek anemonefish! These fish form a symbiotic relationship with their host anemone, so they are unaffected by the stinging tentacles.

Our Animal of the Week is the horseshoe crab! Horseshoe crabs may look like crustaceans but they are actually more closely related to spiders and scorpions.
