Wednesday I visited this facility in Ocean Shores, Washington. Here are some interesting things I saw:
This is an Ocean Sunfish:
This particular specimen isn’t very big (the main body was maybe the size of a large frying pan) but according to some photos I have seen online recently these fish can grow to be grotesquely large.
Next, a Green Sea Turtle:
Remember “Crush” in the movie Finding Nemo?
Next, a very ornate Hawksbill Sea Turtle:
And a little bit closer look at it’s shell, head and flipper:
And finally, a red-tailed hawk. I just love watching these fly….
Unfortunately this guy’s flying days are over.
