You can post all kinds of animal species which are part of the marine life, whether ocean fishes, marine mammals, sea birds, sea turtles and reptiles, cephalopods (octopus, squid, etc.) and other sea mollusks (shellfish, sea snail, etc.), marine echinoderms (starfish, urchin, sea cucumber, etc.), crustaceans (lobster, shrimp, etc.) and other marine arthropods, cnidaria (jellyfish, coral, etc.), etc. Zoological names are helpful to find the correct pictures and information to share (and for "problematic letters", especially X, Q, U and Z).

Who doesn't love Nemo, an anemonefish, or, more precisely, a clownfish (Amphiprion)?

This is for A ...

Wow, and it is with Nemo!
Dan Marianne Feb 8, 2016
Yeah, it is a scene from the movie.
Marianne Marianne Mar 9, 2016


And here's one of these black "sea devils" (there are different kinds of anglerfishes):


HegeMarie Marianne Apr 20, 2016

It is not as suited to be a main character in a movie;)

Marianne Marianne Apr 21, 2016

Lol - indeed!

Thank you, an excellent choice!

Isn't it 'C' ?
Marianne MidnightCowboy Feb 4, 2016
An excellent idea - the colours are amazing.
Marianne MidnightCowboy Apr 21, 2016

Thank you, Dan; the picture is great! :)

Marianne MidnightCowboy Aug 17, 2016

Hello, Dan, how about adding a marine creature?

E is on!

Marianne Feb 4, 2016

Dogfish (Spiny Dogfish)

image (Squalus acanthias)

Dan Marianne Feb 4, 2016
It looks like a kind of shark.
Marianne Marianne Feb 4, 2016
It is indeed a shark species, this family is a very big one.
MidnightCowboy Feb 4, 2016

Eel (Yellow Moray)


Marianne MidnightCowboy Feb 4, 2016
Nice colours!
Marianne MidnightCowboy Aug 17, 2016

Hello, Midnight Cowboy, how about continuing in this game?

The pattern is awesome.

Marianne Dan Apr 7, 2016

Thank you, Dan! :)

Marianne Dan Aug 26, 2016

Hello, Dan - are you chuckling now? Here's another challenge: a marine animal beginning with "F".


Marianne Apr 7, 2016

Jawfish (Opistognathus aurifrons, yellowheaded jawfish)


HegeMarie Apr 20, 2016

King Crab. These can make a lot of damage on the sea bottom

Marianne HegeMarie Apr 21, 2016


Oh yes, I heard about the king crab, it is both, a problem for their new environment and a blessing for the food sector.

HegeMarie HegeMarie Apr 21, 2016

Mhm:unsure: They are a threat to several other species at the bottom.

I don't think there should be restrictions on fishing them, but the good restaurant prices allows them to stay.

Marianne HegeMarie Apr 23, 2016

They should rather collect them and send/sell them for reintroduction in their native waters, the Bering Sea; as far as I heard, they seem to become too rare there.

HegeMarie HegeMarie Apr 27, 2016

Ahh, I didn't know they was getting rare. You are better informed than me. Then moving them would be the best solution.

Marianne Apr 21, 2016

Lumpfish (Cyclopterus lumpus)

HegeMarie Marianne Apr 21, 2016

Hardly a beauty :D

Marianne Marianne Apr 23, 2016


Lol - indeed not, but weird and funny.

HegeMarie Marianne Apr 27, 2016

Fascinating, indeed :D

Marianne Marianne Apr 29, 2016


HegeMarie Apr 27, 2016

Speaking of weird creatures

Moon Fish (Mola mola)

Marianne HegeMarie Apr 28, 2016

Lol - you got the weirdest - you can use Mola (Mola mola).

Marianne Apr 28, 2016

Nautilus (N. belauensi)


TheOtherTink Marianne Apr 28, 2016

Lol, there was a guy on SH who used a nautilus as an avatar.  I made fun of his silly posts mercilessly, but he was a good sport and always came back for more.  :)

Marianne Marianne Apr 29, 2016


Lol - there will always be people provoking others. Some might simply need some attention, others might wish to learn and don't know how to ask. And teens have many questions, which seem silly or awkward. Lol - your "merciless" reminds me of Elvis Presley's "Don't Be Cruel". Lol.


Very old-fashioned, but bringing about big smiles:

TheOtherTink Apr 28, 2016

Octopus, what else?  :)


Marianne TheOtherTink Apr 29, 2016

Lol - all the more if remembering Paul:


Marianne TheOtherTink Aug 29, 2016


When verses show that people think,
they are far from the common "tink";
as we enjoy a special clink,
who spreads smiles with a sunny blink.
We are missing your cheerful link,
sending words made of golden ink.

@ Marianne:

Oh, my good friend Marianne,

Like an ancient Marcomanne,

I've been busy fighting swaths

Not of Romans, Huns or Goths,

But of liberal false deceivers

Who, like many true believers,

Twist the facts to suit their function —

Politics, without compunction.

Therefore, I've been occupied

Count'ring falsehoods that I've spied,

By a fellow who's inclined

To specious math; it's so designed

To fool the nescient and the credulous,

Or the lazy and non-sedulous.  :D


Marianne TheOtherTink Sep 1, 2016

It's not so easy from abroad,
to find the gap which frees the road,
and clear the wall of foggy clouds,
which rise ahead in opaque shrouds,
mingling folks of various sizes,
wasting souls at lowest prizes;
crooks and "knights", or humble labour,
rivals, strangers or some neighbour,
want to know what's right or wrong,
while stuck inside the moving throng.
But in floods of contradictions,
ev'ry side claims its convictions,
whether figures or equations,
graphs or blind prognostications;
extremes ignore essential needs,
false prophets spread their evil seeds,
while hatred stirs the angry mobs
fed with scandals and stinging throbs.
Crimes are soiling all the sides,
big business sponsors trends or tides,
if scruples burden righteous minds,
there are stories of many kinds -
myths, gossip, or facts and fiction,
which might upset one's conviction ...
Here in Europe, news are "swerving",
it is hard to be just "serving";
my dear friend, there's too much gambling
while the little ones are scrambling.
Yet, fast growth depletes the nature,
still ignored by legislature.
