Mad Scientists wrap up their experiments as the hurricane blows in.

Mad Scientist at the National Zoo's Haunted Salamander Lab.

The winds picked up during the final, frightening night of Boo at the Zoo. But visitors braved the weather to visit the Haunted Salamander Lab and meet our nocturnal hellbenders. As hurricane Sandy rolled in, the mad scientists mixed the last of their potions and completed their bizarre experiments.

    I am looking for the photo taken of me during Boo at the Zoo. I cannot seem to be able to locate it on the website so, it would be much appreciated if you could email it to me. I was the tall young man wearing a black cloak with red clouds on it. I don’t mean to be much of a bother, I would just like to see the picture.
    my email address is in my information and I hope to hear from you soon.
