Oyster Toadfish Spotlight

Oyster toadfish live in Hudson River Park’s estuarine sanctuary, croak like toads despite not having vocal organs, and have powerful jaws strong enough to chomp through hard shells. In this STEM Activity of the Week we’re sharing video that takes a deep dive into the life of this unique species. This shines a spotlight on the habitat and behavior of the oyster toadfish and shares current research being conducted about it in Hudson River Park.
