Happy Oceans Day dear friends,
In previous Oceans days I posted about the affect of plastic or cool dolphins video but this year I would like to share with you a clip about a very little animal, the Sea Hare. Our oceans are such a complex inter species dependent that we are still far from understanding. We are a part of this interdependency and as such it is our privilege and duty to help. Even leaving the beach cleaner than we found it can even help one of these guys.

There are many kinds of Sea Hares large and small. They create a soft internal shell made of protein and their color corresponds with the color of the seaweed they eat. These fellows are about 2 inches long (5cm), filmed in the Red Sea. They have one of the funniest forms of swimming I ever encountered as you will see toward the end of the clip. Enjoy...

My iguanas on CBS Sunday Morning this weekend!
I ventured to film land base animals for a change, for a friend's film titled "It Ain't Easy Being Green". I found the main difference is gravity. I enjoyed spending time and learning these funny dinosaur looking reptiles.

the iguana segment will be appearing on the “moment in nature segment” at the end of the CBS Sunday Morning. If you can't see it live I will post a link after the show.

I'll be back to my aquatic friends shortly :-)
