Saw this turtle leaning up against the glass. Wasn’t sure if it was real or just a prop. Watched him for several minutes for movement. Saw slight head movement and decided it was real. When I walked back by him later, he was indeed real, he moved to the back. lol Day 317/365.
This Batfish was at the Florida Aquarium. They lie still as a rock.The Batfish has uniquely creepy pectoral and pelvic fins that let it ”walk” across the seafloor. Similar to anglerfishes, batfishes lure in small edibles like shrimp, worms and fish using a wriggle-ready appendage on their nose that acts just like a fishing rod. Day 316/365.
This mother and baby orangutan were playing peek-a-boo. Mom would go up and baby would go under the log. It was so funny to see her under that blanket. There was another orangutan under a blanket there too. 🙂 Day 315/365.
Got this picture at the Florida Aquarium. Looks like this shark needs braces… 🙂 Day 314/365.
This baby gorilla looks so cute! He was at Busch Gardens in Tampa, FL. Day 313/365.
This tiger is so cute sticking it’s tongue out! Day 312/365.
This beautiful Bald Eagle was at the Tampa Zoo. Day 311/365.
This picture has a few cool things about it (I think 😉 ). The most obvious is the reflection in the water. I also love the way the pelicans are looking at the turtle in front of them. Then as I was looking closer at the picture, I noticed the 2 smaller and a larger turtle behind the pelican on the right. At first glance the turtle head looks like a snake! Day 310/365.
This baby elephant and gazelle were playing. The elephant would wrap his trunk around the gazelle’s horns, then they would both turn their heads. It was so cute! Day 309/365.
This American Alligator resides at the Florida Aquarium in Tampa. I sure wouldn’t want those teeth chomping on me! Day 308/365.
