Skates are such funny little characters sometimes!
Hello friends! Today I am following the journals adventure to the Save The Bay Aquarium in Newport. Their mission is to engage the community in marine life in an interactive way. How cool is that?! I thought I'd catch up with some of my friends from the bay and see what they are up to.

Wow these step-by-step sketches in the journal are really helpful!
This baby skate already knows how to walk! It's called punting, and those "legs" are actually modified pelvic fins. Right now he is only three inches long but he will grow to 30 inches as an adult, and he will still be using those fins to walk along the ocean bottom.
The two black dots are actually my nostrils. My eyes are on the back of my head.
And I look good as
text art too!
