Today’s post is in honor of my super awesome niece who just turned 18 over Thanksgiving weekend while she was here visiting us. She is a marine biology extraordinaire, works at the Georgia Aquarium, and has plans to start FSU in the fall in their study abroad program–as a marine biology major, of course. She is just so amazing and I am super proud of her!
An added benefit of having her with us while at any beach is that she can pull sea creatures out of the ocean and not only tell you exactly what they are, but she can handle them in a way so that you can hold them, touch them, smell them, (sometimes taste them! Yes, I’m telling on you that you licked that cannonball jellyfish!), and get a good close up look at them without getting stung or bitten or poisoned. 
She’s handy that one!
So today we are going to have a quiz. It’s called: Guess That Sea Creature. 
Ready? Okay, here we go!
Photo 1: Is it a…
a. bird skull with a giant eyeball still in tact
b. an alien vagina giving birth to something alien
c. a live conch my niece pulled out of the ocean and handed to my son for me to photograph
Photo 2: Is it a…
a. gold star for effort, much deserved after hiking all day and then having to frolic in the Atlantic
b. a starfish that was still moving and very much alive, and promptly returned to its home unharmed.
c. Peach
Photo 3: Is it a…
b. egg case
c. a biological remnant that once held stingray eggs
 If you answered C, B, and ALL 3, you would be Correct!
Here ends your marine biology lesson for today and a special thank you to my awesome niece for providing the material for today’s post! 
Love you, L!
