Did you know, river otters have 373,022 hairs per square inch on their bodies, way more than humans have on their entire bodies, even hairy humans!

The South Carolina Aquarium’s Sea Turtle Rescue Program took in 6 endangered Kemp’s ridley sea turtles and 1 rare Kemp’s ridley/ green hybrid sea turtle yesterday afternoon. The turtles were cold-stunned in December near Cape Cod, Mass. and had been receiving treatment from the New England Aquarium. Thanks to the generosity of local chief executive of Eclipse Aerospace, Mason Holland, the turtles were flown in on private jet to Atlantic Aviation at the Charleston International Airport. The jet, a new-age lightweight, Eclipse 500, uses a fourth of the fuel of a normal, making it as close to ‘green’ as jets can get. The turtles are all now safely in the Sea Turtle Hospital and doing well. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150536168657342.403153.25342737341&type=1

Recently an invasive species known as the tiger prawn has been making headlines as spotting have become more frequent in the Gulf of Mexico and along the Atlantic Coast. Originally from the Indian and Pacific Oceans, this species has a ravenous appetite and could pose a threat to native species. Stop by the Aquarium and see one up close this weekend! Donated to the Aquarium by our partners at SCDNR, this oversized-looking shrimp can newly be found near the Touch Tank:
