Interesting Sea Creatures
In the past three days we have seen many very interesting marine animals. First, there is a big patch of turtle grass near our boat, and we keep seeing sea turtles there. Some of them are tagged, and they usually won't mind if you swim up to them. They will just turn their heads at you and look at you as if to say, "Well? What are you looking at?" I also saw several spiny lobster under a rock two days ago. The Tobago Cays are a marine park, so we couldn't take any. Then we saw an octopus the same day. It wasn't really swimming, it was almost walking along the bottom. Later, we saw a spotted eagle ray. Apparently they don't have stings in their tails, but we didn't get too close to it. Dad and Rigel also saw a cuttlefish. I don't know what it was doing, and I've never seen one either. Both they and the octopus were capable of squirting ink, but neither did. Maybe they knew we wouldn't hurt them. Octopi can be very intelligent. Anyway, the Tobago Cays have proved to be absolutely full of marine life.
