2 Things Challenge Animal/Vegetable

The challenge this week is Animal/Vegetable. I visited my son and daughter-in-law in Dallas last weekend, and we went to the Dallas Aquarium on Friday. We went to the Fort Worth Zoo on Saturday, so see some of the other posts for some shots from there. One of the creatures inside the aquarium is the sea dragon. It's not a sea horse, they have prehensile tails, but it is definitely animal. The really neat thing about them is their camo; they disquise themselves to look like sea weed. So, we have an animal pretending to be a vegetable to avoid predation by other animals.
I noticed last week that some of my photos get chopped off on the right if they are not viewed on a wide screen format, so you may have to click the photo to see the whole image.
