A Galapagos shark calculates his next move during a bait ball feeding frenzy off the coast of Mexico. Having gorged himself for over an hour he could hardly move. He was so big and slow a school of baitfish were sticking close to use him as protection.
From #WaittGrantees @vivaecoviva Thanks to the @waittfoundation Rapid Ocean Conservation grant, we are working with @fiaes_sv and the Salvadoran Ministry of the Environment to establish a citizen science monitoring program of the country's vulnerable coastal zones.
Here's another wierd/good one from Joe. The little heart looking thing in the middle of that gorgonia coral spiderweb is a Tunicate and they are odd creatures. Some are free swimming and others are more like a sac with two siphons. This one looks both creepy and kind of heart like.
