Scalyhead sculpins are a tiny fish but the males have a giant parenting role.
I found what I believe were this species’ eggs while guiding a recent beach study (with Mr. Barfoot’s class from Robert Scott Elementary, Port Hardy, BC).
To share this information, and my photos, I’ve tried something new. Below, you’ll find a slideshow that I have narrated to explain how scalyhead sculpins are super dads.
Yes, that’s right, you get to hear my voice this week (oh-so-human stumbled speech and all!). Please realize I am speaking as I would to a +/- 10 year old.
