Looking at the Nurse Shark in the shark tank. I think he was disappointed that the sharks at the aquarium weren't great big white sharks. (Can you imagine one of those in that tank?) These guys remind me of the worms from the Dune series. I kid you not when I tell you that it looked like this fish wanted to talk to me. He just floated there while he stared at me for the longest time. I felt like he was saying, "Oh, just hurry up and take the picture, already." PIRANHAS! (Remember that cheesy film from the 70s?) This is a Queen Triggerfish. She looks like she's painted up for Mardi Gras! Unfortunately, I had a hard time taking a picture of her because she was bouncing around the front of that tank like she had rocket jets on her fins. I could've sworn that she was teasing me. They were staring at each other. Doesn't he look a bit like a grumpy old man? "You kids stay outta my damn yard." "Yeah. What he said." "Le petit monde de Nemo". (He was pointing at a fish that looked like Dory.) Looking for Nemo. These guys were vigorously brushing themselves in that anemone. It was a riot to see. What visit to the aquarium would be complete without holding a starfish? (I had to take off the cotton jacket so he could stick his hands in the water.) Walking back to the car. [Awwww!]
