What The Fish?

We weren’t sure at first but, no this is not an oriental silk fish painting, nor the contents of a really groovy petri dish experiment.

These are Sailfin Sculpins! They’re cute! And they are on exhibit now at the Kelp Forest touch pool at the always awesome Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Happiest little bottom dwellers ever. (shifty-eyes)
