Sea Monkeys!

Sea Monkeys!! Who else remembers them? I looked them up on Google just now, and was amazed to find that they're still being sold. Did anyone ever hatch one?

Go here http://www.sea-monkeys.com for more information on the most disappointing "pet" I ever had as a child.:(

(I preferred the dead mammals I used to keep in the freezer :D )

Have'nt seen my favourite being mentioned, although I may be wrong. I have a soft spot for Rays, I think the most graceful of the 'deep blue movers'. Had the joy of diving with a giant ray once, was very cool !!

Be safe !

:D

I'm with the sharks. No doubt. Like a shark I'll die if I stop moving long enough, and I live to travel the world's oceans checking out the deep unseen places. Although sea dragons are very cool too!

In baja they call me "La Rana" or "The Frog" because of my big ol omer fins and the fact that I stay in the water for so long.

I guess I most identify with the frog...or maybe a cold beer.

Yea I think Ill have a beer...

Hmmm, this is a tough one. So tough, that I think I'd have to go the fantasy route along with Lynn, and identify myself with a merman (that's one of the nicknames I've earned, anyway. Although, in certain other circles, I'm known as an "otter". Hmmmm). I can also relate with the whole "catching fish" before you can eat them vibe; most of my evening freedive training sessions end with a trip to Long John Silver's...I literally CRAVE fish after I've been freediving!

After training I often have a strong craving for fried chicken:) What does this say about me?rofl Well I do love birds that swim - comorants/shags, penguins, swifts..... But I wouldn't say I identify with any particular animal. In terms of the animal that I feel the most spiritual connection with I think it would have to be the the hawk. I feel awe when I see them and they are to me a sign of something being right in the universe.

I'm with the rest of the Orca guys. There is something to be said for being at the top of the food chain :).

No spiritual connection or any of that stuff, just a BIG appreciation for them. Don't get me wrong, I have a lot of respect for sharks. But, it seems to me sharks act because that is what they are designed to do, almost like they are following programming. Orcas stalk, and kill with extraordinary skill and cleverness.

We had 3 follow our 23' RHIB once....talk about feeling small :)

Fishy tastes aside I definitely fall into the Human - anything else is New Age w**k class.
On a good day I think I'm above average as a freediver but I'm still comparable as a cod in the London marathon compared to a Dolphin in the sea.
