Fishy Fishy!

To those who say that fish cannot be cute, I present the following evidence from the Monterey Bay Aquarium:

Sea horses!

They're so cute when they're perched.

Wee little one (1.5" long)

The cutest camouflage ever!

Of course, seahorses aren't the only thing they have on offer there. There's also the beautiful and graceful:

Luminescent Comb Jellies (they really do glow in rainbow patterns, and the patterns cycle along their sides like disco lights; so cool!)

Black Sea Nettles, who don't really know what's going on, nor do they care. They just go on doin' their thing, man.

The fearsome:

Sharks are always cool.

That tuna in the upper right behind the school of mackerel is nearly 6' long and 2' across. Monstrous.

And the so-cute-someone-really-ought-to-make-a-law-against-it cute:

Sea Otters are among the cutest things ever. What else sleeps in such adorable poses?

No shame at all.

Hello, there!

I am loving the new camera! See if you can spot which pictures I imported from RAW instead of using the plain jpg.


  1. Aaaaw you should post to cuteoverload.com

  2. I updated some of the pictures with higher quality versions. Check them out!

  3. i like the picture with the school of mackerel. it's purdy.

    but i don't think sea-horses are cute at all. or really any fish for that matter.
