ABC Wednesday is a wonderful meme conjured up by DENISE NESBITT and HER TEAM which we are certain will help us update our knowledge in addition to giving us glimpses of the artistic takes of many of our friends on the English alphabets.
We missed ‘A’ which was pondered over by all last week. So, hurrying to catch up, Ginger is discussing ‘A’ and Buddy is discussing ‘B’ today.
‘A’ is for Aquarium’
Remember our friend Rick? Well, here he is.
(Rick is supposed to be our littlest friend. Will someone tell him to stop growing up so fast?)
Recently, he sent us some pictures from his weekend visit to the NEW ENGLAND AQUARIUM in Boston, Massachusetts.
You better try clicking here HERE instead of squinting at that photograph!
Aquarium is a ‘vivarium’ which according to the FREE ONLINE DICTIONARY is a place, especially an indoor enclosure, for keeping and raising living animals and plants under natural conditions for observation or research.
The New England Aquarium is one of the world’s largest vivariums which acts as a centre for ocean exploration and marine life conservation.
Those are African Penguins also called ‘Jackass penguins’ due to their donkey like cry!! They are an Endangered species
Don't they remind you of ‘Ramon’ from ‘Happy Feet’? He is a Southern Rockhopper penguin.
Conservation status: Vulnerable.
Did you know? He is the only type of penguin who dives feet first rather than head first into the sea?
Little Blue Penguins are world’s smallest penguins. Conservation status: Least concern
Oh! Isn’t that Nemo now? He is wandering off all by himself AGAIN! Did you know, Nemo is an ‘Anemone Fish’
That is an ‘Ochre Sea Star’, a species of what is commonly called star fish.
Those two are Lion Fishes, a type of Scorpionfish.
Don’t be fooled by their lovely pattern. They have extremely venomous spines. No wonder their conservation status is stable!
Can you spot Rick? He is talking to that Seal out there. Is he a Northern fur Seal? Must ask Rick. If it is,it's Conservation status is Vulnerable
That is Myrtle the Giant Green sea turtle. She is 70 years old approximately.
Conservation status: Endangered
Those are Moon jellies, a species of jelly fish. They are survivors and can thrive even in dirty polluted water. Conservation status: obviously stable
Thanks Ricky and Ricky’s Mummy Ria and Daddy Arnov, for the pawonderful photographs. They made us read a lot and learn about our marine life.
And now over to Buddy....
Hello folks! Buddy here.
After that long discussion, I decided an ‘illustrated B’ will be a good change. So here we go…
‘B’ is for BONES.
‘B’ is for Bourbon Biscuits.
(Well, you can't see any because Mumsy wouldn't let me have any!!Sigh!)
‘B’ is for Bouncing Ball
‘B’ is for Butter
‘B’ is for Burger
‘B’ is for (Mummy’s) Baked chicken
Ginger: STOP,STOP Buddy STOP! We have learned enough of your Bs! You are drooling all over the sofa and yourself too!
Anyways, it was Mummy’s mistake. She should have known better than to let Buddy discuss ‘B’ of all alphabets!
Mumsy, you better hurry up now and get US…err...I mean Buddy….some bones if you love your sofa!
And today's post was 'too much study and no play' already!
