Yes. In the National Aquarium in DC (really crappy aquarium, don't bother
if you have to make a trip there - go to Baltiomore instead) They are in a
pretty large tank, but not as large as they should have been, and the fish
were aging, but definately in the 1 foot+ size range. I'd even say some
were even over 13"...
