Yes, for the spineless – that we will no longer be able to see. For many years there was an aquarium in the Commerce building downtown. For a long time it was dark and dreary, but endured. More recently it was taken under the wing (or fin?) of the National Aquarium in Baltimore. When DC Aquarium had to close just a year or two ago, I had heard that it had been one of the longest operating aquaria in the US. We still had the wonderful Invertebrate House at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo to get our fill of spineless creatures. Not anymore! Only last Sunday did they announce that it was closing…in…just…seven…days!
and saw this little crab hiding in there looking for his lunch….
So, even though those spineless creatures will be gone from the zoo, you can always check out the Insect Zoo in the Natural History Museum – they still have that exhibit, don’t they?
Oh, sewing? Yes, there has been progress on that front also and I will be reporting soon. Stay tuned!
