Two Tennessee Aquarium sturgeons die

Two beluga sturgeons died over the weekend at the Tennessee Aquarium, shortly after being moved to a new exhibit, called "River Giants." Upon death aquarium biologists discovered one sturgeon, named "Boris," thought to be a male, was actually a female and likely died after eggs she was carrying had become infected. Biologists believe a second sturgeon, named "Horace," died from kidney failure.
