Volume 6 Number 4
In this issue:
- Young French Angelfish in the Shallows
- West Indies Sea Egg is a Ball of Needles
- Peacock Flounder Hugs the Sand
This issue features three pictures taken in shallow water near the pier near the south end of Grand Turk. The shallow water near shore is not like the coral reefs found farther from shore. Shallow water over a sandy bottom attracts different kinds of animals, and the poles of the pier also offer shelter to many animals. This habitat is a good place to find young fish, bottom-dwelling fish, and some unusual invertebrates (say, "in-VER-tuh-brats"; these are animals that don't have backbones).
