Love is in the air at the National Museum of Natural History! Our scientists are helping species look for love in this series of “dating profiles” to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Will #NMNHcupid help them find their one and only?
Screen name: DeadliestCatch
Species: Hymenopus coronatus
Location: hiding in plain sight
Height: not over 4 inches
Body Type: petal-shaped
Diet: unsuspecting insects
I'm really good at: Hiding
The first thing people usually notice about me: They don’t until it’s too late.
On a typical Friday, you’ll find me: You won’t.
I'm looking for: A male. Or is that a meal?
