My Aquatic Friends

Welcome to a mini-ocean. It's to be found in the Geology Museum in the Romney Building. Any quick break between class, I'll go check it out.Here's one of the newer crinoids that have joined the aquatic ranks: Here's a crab that I saw for the first time today: And here's a sea cucumber that prefers hanging on the glass side of the aquarium. Have you ever seen a sea-apple feed itself? I can go see it almost any day of the week. It tucks its arms in its mouth and eats the food off of them. (That's a couple of faculty members, Bro. Ben and Bro. Little, discussing global climate issues in the background audio)

That lucky Sea-Apple. My mom always yelled at me when I ate with my fingers.
