Not all of us can be home to celebrate Thanksgiving with our families. Remember our brave men and women of our armed forces deployed overseas and keeping watch on this day. Be sure to give thanks for their bravery and sacrifice so we may enjoy a thanksgiving meal at home with our loved ones.
Feeling stuffed after your Thanksgiving meal? These sea lions in Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary have the right idea!
Sea lions use their flippers to help cool down – their flippers have less blubber than the rest of their body, so heat can escape from the flipper’s surface when sea lions hold them above the water. Sounds like a good way to relax after a celebration!
White striped anemone - Anthothoe albocincta #marineexplorer by John Turnbull Via Flickr: A. albocincta is a common anemone native to eastern Australia and NZ. Like the stony corals, anemones have 6-sides symmetry (although it’s hard to tell with so many tentacles). Bare Island
For @rockingthegraveyard and @unlucky-marine for giving me great tips on how to deal with Marineford in my stomach…I didn’t see it til this morning so I didn’t put them to use, but next time I sure will! So have these sketches as thanks for the lookout!
