Giant River Otter at the  Dallas World AquariumThe Giant River Otters at the Dallas World Aquarium are rarely out, and when they are, there’s such a crowd gathered around it’s difficult to move forward or even try to get past them to go onto the next exhibit. I was lucky to take this photo from the third floor.

Survivor: sand crab with a transparent shell and two legs missing. Nag's Head beach, Outer Banks, NCSurvivor: sand crab with a transparent shell and two legs missing. Nag’s Head beach, Outer Banks, NC. This little crab measuring about 2 inches across had two legs missing but was still managing across the hills and valleys of footsteps in the sand. My guess is that a bird must have snatched it up then dropped it, retaining two of the legs for lunch. Shortly after this encounter it finally started digging a hole, offering much more protection than a footprint..

Leafy Seadragon, Dallas World Aquarium, TexasWe discovered the Dallas World Aquarium here in Texas, and I’m obsessed! This place is so much more than an aquarium. We’re getting an annual membership so we can go every weekend. Check out the Leafy Seadragon…well-camouflaged amongst the seaweed of similar design, graceful, gorgeous!
