Night snorkel

This morning started early with a service project. We sealed and then primed a concrete wall so that it could be ready for painting. Then we ate lunch at Mad Dogs.

Group D's article was about the implanting of species that are not naturally...

Trumpetfish

Trumpetfish (Aulostomus maculatus) have long bodies and are very thin. They tend to live in shallow waters up to about 30 meters. They usually swim vertically in an attempt to appear like certain types of coral. Trumpetfish live in the warm waters of the western Atlantic, ranging from Florida to northern South America and from the Gulf of Mexico...
