Fish Are Friends, NOT Food! (Part II)

(Here’s Part I, BTW.) This fellow has been diving down to visit this Asian Sheepshead Wrasse for the last quarter century! He bangs on the old rusty tank to get the fish’s attention, then it looks like he gives him a snack, though it’s kinda hard to tell.

Caturday: Don’t Be Coy Koi…

How Low Can You Go?

Check out little Erasmus here! (Say in a lilting Caribbean accent;) “He can really do da limbo, mon!” (This is his second C.O. appearance- watch him playing soccer- honest- back at Christmas 2013.)

The Sweet Life of Chief Brody’s Cat

(Oh, man, this scam works like a dream. I just put on the shark suit, hum that “dun-dun-dun-dun” theme music, and this bozo drops the kibble and runs out of the house screaming! And the best part is, I have it all to myself… Wait, what’s that music coming from behind me?)

How can you get any better than that?

We honestly did not know fish were into tie-dye. Far out.
