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.

Hi there! (extending paw in friendly handshake gesture). Would you care to have a meaningful anatomy oriented conversation?

“This is my cat Hemingway aka Mr. Poops aka Fatty. I’ve raised him from a kitten but I don’t want to be held responsible for his bad manners! This picture is of him trying his hardest to get at a fish we were pet sitting. Please note that he is a polydactyl kitty – and his white paws make it look like he’s always wearing mittens! Love the site! Keep up the good work!!” -Caroline C.
