Alien-like Catfish: A Scientist’s Strange Discovery

  • Jul 14, 2014 · 5:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Kryptoglanis shajii is a strange fish—and the closer scientists look, the stranger it gets. This small subterranean catfish sees the light of day and human observers only rarely. 

Talk ends by 7:15, but our group usually stays on after the talk ends for a post event discussion.

Speaker: John Lundberg, emeritus curator of ichthyology at the Academy.

Host organization:  The Academy of Natural Sciences

This place gets really packed and people do get pushy about open seats. So we will meet in our usual place at the rear since its last to fill up but also has a line of sight to the screen up front. Talk starts at 6pm but if you can get there early, it can help corner that area for our group.

Looking for additional hosts to volunteer. All you need to do is get there by 5:20 so you can corner some seats.

    Interesting topic..sort of. The presenter was not an experienced speaker or teacher it seemed, and because of not knowing how to use a microphone I missed at least half of what he said.

    Our group will meet at the rear corner of the bar to the right of the main doors. Will have meetup sign on wall. If you can come before 5:30 to hold spots that would be perfect.
