I took this picture walking to my assigned location as a volunteer at the San Diego Zoo. Today is my one year anniversary as a “red shirt” volunteer. This is a pair of Siamese Fireback taken as I walked down the “Tiger Trail”. What a wonderful place to visit and work. The San Diego Zoo.

“Nobody of any real culture, for instance, ever talks nowadays about the beauty of sunset. Sunsets are quite old fashioned…. To admire them is a distinct sign of provincialism of temperament. Upon the other hand they go on.” – Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) San Diego sunset, April 7, 2013, 7:13pm

Birch Aquarium “Sea Dragons”

Filed under: Places to visit, Uncategorized — Tags: , — washaw @ 8:57 am

Unlike most seahorses Weedy Sea Dragons do not have a prehensile tail so they are not able to anchor. These seahorses move very slowly in the water. Males carry the eggs, give birth to them and then both parents take care of the kids. They are native to Australia and endangered.
