Lionfish

Lionfish, from the Indo-Pacific, are an invasive species in the Atlantic. They are wrecking havoc on coral reefs up and down the Eastern US seaboard. Watch: "Invasion of the Alien Fish" to learn all about these fearsome predators!

Horseshoe Crab

"Horseshoe Crabs - Prehistoric Paramedics" is the remarkable exploration of a prehistoric animal and a modern medical marvel. Middle School students in South Carolina investigate the crabs, their life cycle, habitats and the threats that affect them. One of nature’s puzzle pieces, they fit into place as an important partner with humans.
