Mom left me to go on vacation in Ft Lauderdale, Florida, this past week. I told her she must do a Big World Report while she was there, or I would be very upset.
Mom agreed, but I am not so sure she did much Big World research for me.
She said she hiked through the fierce raging sea looking for animal friends for me.
She found my friends' abandoned shell houses, but no animal friends!
She felt she had to show me "evidence" of her hard work researching.
This is it, mom? A piece of Sea Cucumber? It is not even alive!
Sea Cucumbers are Echinoderms, like Sea Stars, Sea Urchins and Sand Dollars, and there are many varieties.
The Sea Cucumber is covered with hundreds of tiny feet with suction cups, called tube feet.
Ok, so this is interesting to see, but it makes me sad to see an animal friend that is not alive!
Stay tuned for Friends in Ft Lauderdale - Part II.
I sure hope it will be a better Big World Report than this!
