Updates from the Gulf!
Hey guys! Squirt here!
Have you enjoyed all the updates from my friend Flat Stanley? I know he is having a lot of fun learning from all the scientists out at sea! They have had a little trouble connecting to the internet but I have some cool updates to share with you!
Check out this juvenile (young) Flying Fish they encountered! I'm sure Flat Stanley was so excited to see this!
Here is an adult Flying Fish!
I guess now you can see why they call them flying fish? They look like they have wings, just like birds! Flying fish don't actually fly but they can glide above the water for a while! I hear that several landed on the boat while Flat Stanley and the scientists were out!
Flat Stanley also had the chance to meet the Cock-Eyed Squid! These wonderful squids get their name because they have one eye larger than the other. You can also see the beautiful colors and photophores (light producing organs) on this squid.
I'm so excited to see what else Flat Stanley and the scientists have in store for us.
Until next time!
