Haven't logged in for a while, I just remembered I have a blog here.
So, I just did fed the fishes at the big reef exhibit (sting-rays, eagle rays, barracuda, bonito...etc.) and it just occurred to me, of all the fish you have there, the rays are pretty friendly, they would literally choke themselves to death, wings flapping, eyes blankly staring at you while waiting for you shove some fish in their constantly open mouths than wait like the rest of the normal fish.
After working here for close to two weeks, I've started noticing things I wouldn't
During the routine slacking off time while working at the aquarium, the scuba diver came up and brought us a dead fiddler ray from one of the larger tanks.
We took some photos, buried it in ice and a trashbag and we're not waiting for the vet to come up to have a look.
Also, pictures, incoming...at some point. (Can't let the boss know we're slacking off AND taking pictures that aren't really work related)
So apparently, one of the staff members at the aquarium I work at regularly goes out fishing and sometimes trawling to look for new specimens. He showed me this funny shell and said "I wonder what kind of snail uses this kind of shell, it looks pretty thin."
I took a look and was suprised, it was an argonaut shell. I've asked about it and apparently, he had a whole bunch of them from the same trawl (he said they probably traveled in schools (groups?)
This is my first blog post so forgive me if I've somehow done something wrong. (I sure hope I don't)
Anyway, I've started an internship at Ocean Park in Hong Kong, a marine themed amusmant park which has all the usual rides that a theme park would have AND some science stuff, like say...an aquarium.
Working inside the aquarium has been eye opening, I've been to the aquarium probably over a hundred times by now and I never realised how much work (or how little) actually
