THE KID'S CORNER
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!
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!
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!
They are so pretty : orange on one side, and white on the other!
Not 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.
