As far as hobbies go, I’ve taken to gardening…. rock gardens specifically. Jelly Bean loves to help me, but she can’t do much yet. so i had my trainer order a miniature zen garden.
((as for video games, i’ll answer in OOC. i largely play games like Zelda, Pokemon, ive played bravely default and KH 2… animal crossing is something ive played recently and i’ll be playing Splatoon2 at launch.
A large colony of garden eels sway and feed in the gentle currents off Dumaguete Philippines. Garden eels are extremely shy and harmless members of the conger eel family. They live in burrows on the sea floor and are very social creatures that form large colonies. The currents deliver a a continuous passing supply of plankton allowing the eels to feed in the comfort and safety of their sandy home. As our team approached this giant colony they quickly vanished into their burrows as if they never existed. I find these colonies to be hypnotic living gardens in the sea.

Manta rays are frequent visitors to Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary in the Gulf of Mexico! If you’re diving, make sure to give them plenty of space – if they want to hang out with you, they will.
natgeo On assignment with @daviddoubilet // Photographing an American crocodile at night in the mangroves of Gardens of the Queen National Park, Cuba. This crocodile rested in the soft seagrass for several minutes and then rose slowly to take a breath of air and return to the bottom to sleep again. Crocodiles are called the engineers of the mangroves because their movements increase circulation of water and nutrients through the dense root systems of the mangroves. Gardens of the Queen Marine Preserve, located fifty miles south of Cuba, is a time capsule in the Caribbean that looks much like it did when Columbus arrived and named it in honor of his Queen.
