New exhibit, "Dragons! Real or Myth?," opens Feb. 14
Dragons have been part of lore back to antiquity. Cultures on nearly all continents have imagined dragons. But some dragons are very real. The Maritime Aquarium's new exhibit, "Dragons! Real or Myth?," features a variety of land and sea animals with dragon
in their names, and also explores the history of mythological dragons and their roles in cultures. Star of the exhibit is a baby black dragon, one of only an estimated 31 in the U.S. and the only one displayed in any zoo or aquarium. Get the press release here.
