Because it’s been many months since we first made the discovery, as a public service the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders would like to remind everyone that baby Horseshoe Crabs are incredibly small and awesomely cute. The wee hatchlings in these photos are baby Atlantic Horseshoe Crabs (Limulus polyphemus).

"Atlantic Horseshoe Crabs lay eggs 2,000 to 30,000 eggs, which hatch approximately 2 weeks later. Hatchlings stay in tidal areas for about a year before traveling into deeper areas of the ocean."

These little ones were recently collected from local tidal areas by husbandry staff from the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. They’ll be kept under quarantine for one month and then moved to the aquarium’s invertebrate touch tanks.

first attempt making (somewhat) realistic fish
they’re a bit rough but I’ll get better

These are great! I have a soft spot for koi, I really love the movement you put into them. Good job!
