An invasive mussel that poses a serious threat to Wyoming’s natural resources and water systems has been found in a number of pet stores across the state.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has confirmed the presence of zebra mussels in “moss balls,” a product sold at many aquarium and pet supply stores. Game and Fish is urging anyone who has this product to carefully dispose of it and aquarium water immediately.

Proper disposal is essential to help mitigate the potentially catastrophic effects mussels could have for the state.
