Baby Nautilus Born at Birch Aquarium at Scripps in La Jolla, California


A nautilus has hatched at the Birth Aquarium at Scripps Institute of Oceanography at University of California in San Diego in La Jolla, California, a first for the aquarium. To note: a nautilus is a cephalopod, just like the squid. ZooBorns has lots more photos of the little creature who reports the “egg was laid in early November of 2012 and the hatching process has taken weeks… all leading up to last Wednesday, when it finally emerged!”
