This month brought us some more fabulous shots of striped marlin feeding on baitballs and California sea lions getting in on the action too. On the Caribbean side of Mexico we have sailfish feeding on sardines. These are exciting behavioral shots of billfish and worth a look. We have a lot of new freshwater species such as bucktooth tetra, checkerboard barb, croaking gourami, marbled hatchetfish, fly speckled hardyhead, forktail rainbowfish, gulper catfish, lined topminnow, moonlight gourami, ompok catfish, marojejy rainbowfish, Madagascar rainbow fish, Australian lungfish, and ram cichlid. Our reptile collection is increasing with Australian water dragons, panther chameleons, eastern snapping turtle, saltwater crocodiles swimming, Komodo dragons, anole lizards, and thorny devils. Go to the Big Island of Hawaii for a beautiful sunny day, explore our beaches then head to the top of Mauna Kea to see the highest point at 13,796 feet – and of course, SNOW! Morning twilight on Mauna Kea volcano lined with the observatories anf snow is simply spectacular. We go to the Republic of Palau and use black lights to see corals luminescence underwater. The Maldives beckons with blue lagoons, sandy beaches and atolls. We have a wide diversity of animals from the Red Sea, squid, sharks, dolphins, seahorses, anemonefish, batfish, and pipefish, View the fabulous toothy grin of the sandtiger sharks, also known as gray nurse sharks (grey nurse sharks) in Australia – with thousands of schooling fish around them. And last, we make a trek to Antarctica and diver underwater to view Antarctic sea urchins, Antarctic sea stars, Antarctic limpet, giant annelid ribbon worms, spiny plunder fish, and the a great series of images of leopard seals, Hydruga leptonyx, in your face!
