It is something I would recomend to everyone. You get to see the ocean with all it's wildlife in a new look. Though I was a little bummed out because the coral is not like you see in pictures. It was a little dull. But still very cool. When I was down there I was thinking how much one of those fish would cost. They were big and for just a little one it could cost you like 40 bucks! That might be why people fish illegally like that. The temptaion is too great.

Yeah... but with beauty and rarity, comes a price... it's sad, how people illegaly bring in poor fish..

Atlantic spotted dolphins have to be my favorites. Dolphins in general are interesting; I've always loved them.

No, I did not! Thanks for sharing that. :)
I don't know much about them, but marlins are another favorite of mine. Very majestic as well.

I know a lot about the water.. When I was a few years younger, I wanted to be a marine biologist, so I know a lot from past studies..

I love marlins.. Oh, and swordfish.. amazing creatures...

sword fish are really cool ^^ I never seen a marlin but something tells me its something kinda of like the sword fish because the name is just.... i dun know.... :?
I believe in freedom, and peace. But sometimes, you don't always get what you want. Don't believe lies, don't trust strangers who out of the blue talk to you, and beware of scams such as the 2012 lie. YOUR choices shape YOUR future.

Swordfish and marlin do look alike, but marlin grow slightly larger than swordfish

Marlins are also one of my favorite sea animals, especially after I caught one, magnificent animals.

I'd like to become a marine biologist when I'm older, so it's hard to choose my favorite sea creature... xD Well, to name a different, less well-known creature of the sea, I'll just talk a little about the oarfish! Back then, sailors used to mistake these elongated fish for sea serpents(hence the legends). They are believed to grow up to 50 feet long, and they have over 400 dorsal fin rays. Just google them, and you'll see how large they actually look^^

The sad part about having a sting ray attraction in zoos is people allow their kids to just rush over and go crazy with them, so to speak. They're too impatient, which is why the sting rays at my zoo have nail marks along their backs where people have scratched them. Some of them had shortened tails where people somehow broke them off. Can you believe that? Who would do such a thing....

Well, I dont think they care too much.. They are just little cuts.. They are lucky, in the wild it could be much worse... And often, they have their stingers cut off when entering an aquarium to protect those who do touch the rays.
