    allthough I post here mainly on the shoebills at paradisio, my actual interest are fish and reptiles.

    so I thought to post here some news on the new inhabitants at aquatopia. an aquarium facilitity near the antwerp zoo. (but not part of it)

    recently they received 3 zebra bullhead sharks (1.2 heterodontus zebra). a species that's very rare in aquarium collections.

    I went to see them with my girlfriend the first week they were on display

    the new sharks seem to have adapted fine.

    first attempts of mating have been observed. so far the male is only biting the females fins, but hey, it's a start.
