Breeding leafy sea dragons at SeaWorld

Breeding leafy sea dragons at SeaWorld

I decided to check out the latest news with SeaWorld today. Seems like they are having a bit of success breeding a rare type of Seahorse called the leafy sea dragon.

What’s interesting is that the hatchlings, about 40 of them now, are floating in the big aquarium right in the Manta roller coaster ride. SeaWorld is only the sixth aquarium in the world to successfully breed leafy sea dragons.

These funny looking creatures look like twigs and leaves, great for camouflage in the ocean. They are found only off the southern and eastern coasts of Australia.

Trying to get more articles about Orlando tropical fish!

Orlando area tropical fish

When I started this website I intended to talk about all types of pet equally. That included birds, fish and reptiles. However it seems like most of my articles are about cats and dogs.

The one type of pet I really don’t have many articles about are tropical fish. I’m sure many people in the Orlando area have some type of saltwater or freshwater fish.

But frankly I don’t know much about them, I’ve never owned any. Even the amount of fish stores in the Orlando area seems to be pretty small. I’ve wrote about 3 or 4 and I don’t know of any more except for the normal ones in places like Pet Smart and so on.

Barktoberfest pet event at Orlando's Lake Eola park

If you’re looking for a new furry friend, or if you’d just like to enjoy a day of fun while supporting animal rescue and adoptions, mark your calendar for Saturday, October 1, 2011.

That’s when Orange County Animal Services will be holding their first Barktoberfest pet event. Barktoberfest will take place at Lake Eola, in downtown Orlando, Florida. The event begins at 10:00 a.m. and ends at 4:00 p.m.

Barktoberfest provides hopeful animal moms and dads to meet and get to know lots of wonderful animals who are searching for forever homes. Some people who like the idea of adopting a rescue animal don’t like the idea of going to a shelter because they might find it depressing. Barktoberfest is anything but depressing! It’s a happy, upbeat event – a great way to spend a few hours.
