THE KID'S CORNER

L'HISTOIRE DE ROMEO

ONE DAY IN THE LIFE OF "ROMEO" THE DOLPHIN OF PANAMA CITY

The ocean is full of strange creatures, and everyday I swim out to explore them.

The sea is very quiet this morning and the sun is rising slowly on the horizon, promising a beautiful sunny day.

I decide to start my journey by going to the jetties : there are a lot of Fish to tease over there!

dauphin Ooooh... one of them, a stripped one, is swimming by himself, away from his group. It's a Spadefish.

This big fish is really funny.

I release him... He quickly goes back to his group, zigzagging and annoyed to be ridiculed like that!

Here is another one, even funnier : the Puffer Fish.

As soon as something or somebody bothers him, he blows himself up with water, and hop, he looks like a ball floating on the surface! In fact, he pretends to be dead, to fool his predators!



Something on the bottom is catching my attention : I dive down and stick my Rostrum (my nose) in the sand to see what it is : Starfish

They are so pretty : orange on one side, and white on the other!

Bernard l'HermiteNot far from there, a Hermit Crab has found a wonderful shell and he is making it his house.

Indeed, as only one part of his body is covered by a carapace, he protects himself by living in empty shells. As he grows up, his house becomes too small and he has to move into a bigger shell.
