Fishheads

The Fishheads are a Biology group that works with Dr. Pamela Davey Huggins and Karen Grubb. The group researches information about different animals and projects dealing with... that's right, Biology. Recently, the group has been working on tanks and exhibits for the fourth floor of Hunt-Haught Hall. The group does miscellaneous fundraisers in order to gain a budget to buy different animals, including bake sales for various holidays, such as Valentines Day.

The Fishheads' exhibits currently include a West Virginia freshwater exhibit with minnows from Valley falls, and an Indo-Pacific saltwater tank, which contains sea urchins, tropical fish, and small crabs, and resembles a coral reef. These exhibits are far from complete and are constantly being improved.

Future exhibits include an Australian Outback exhibit, a terrestrial West Virginia exhibit, and breeding projects involving betas and leopard geckos. A plant and mushroom exhibit has also been considered.
