Random Tuesday

For the last eleven years or so, I've been a regular volunteer with Birch Aquarium at Scripps. I love the ocean, I love scuba diving, I love science, and I love sharing some of this with other people. What better place than an aquarium? Another cool thing? I'm pretty sure I learn at least one new thing every time I'm there. Usually more than one thing, actually. Today, from a couple of college students I learned about how swordfish super-oxygenate themselves before hunting, by speeding from the ocean depths toward the surface. Another thing I learned is that coral comes in this color;
actually the true color is even more vivid than this. A cellphone camera can only capture so much.
