The Shedd Aquarium has an 80 year old fish. The Shedd is only 75 years! The fish arrived in time for the World’s Exposition which doesn’t make much sense to me. Cuz the World’s Columbian Exposition was in 1893. But it’s cool to say, nontheless.
George Parsons, Shedd’s director of aquarium collections, seems to have a grudge against this fish. He said,”They’re not the most charismatic fish. But they are so primitive and have been around so long that it makes up for the charisma they lack.” He must have had a bad run-in with this fish.
