Happy holidays from our family to yours

Published December 23, 2010

Santa and his elves dropped by the National Aquarium to spread some holiday cheer earlier this week! We caught these holiday helpers in our Atlantic Coral Reef exhibit cleaning up the tank and hanging out with the animals. Santa even paid a visit to our very own green grinch lurking in his cave... Later that day we noticed that they left a few special presents behind for our animals to enjoy! Happy Holidays from our family to yours!
