Lab Mascot

Sir Wolfington

Sadly, Sir Wolfington, a Parachromis dovii, who was inherited from the Itzkowitz lab to serve as our lab mascot, has passed away. He enjoyed his golden years at DeSales after his former caretakers, Dr. Layla Al-Shaer and Dr. Tim Paciorek, retired him. He contributed to many studies of cichlid behavior through the use of his odor as an alarm cue and was a favorite personality of everyone passing through the lab.
