An article in Sunday's editions about animals collected for the National Aquarium's Australian exhibit incorrectly referred to a crocodile named Crazy Sheila as an amphibian. Sheila, like all crocodiles, is a reptile.

Because of editing errors, an article in the Nov. 29 editions of The Sun incorrectly stated that the U.S. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement has assumed jurisdiction over crimes that have been investigated and prosecuted solely by the Justice Department. Various agencies that make up the bureau have been involved in such investigations in the past and are now more deeply involved in these probes, but they have not taken over the Justice Department's role.

The article also incorrectly suggested that the bureau had made 1,500 arrests in the Baltimore area. In fact, the bureau has made 1,500 arrests nationally since July stemming from investigations into sex crimes against children.

The Sun regrets the errors.
