On my travels I have snorkeled with nurse sharks and sting rays in Belize. I have snorkeled with black tipped sharks and sting rays in French Polynesia. My disabled son is very interested in sharks at the moment so yesterday I took him to Bristol Aquarium. It was amazing to see a movie at sharks at the 3D I Max Theater. Wow! They showed many different sorts of sharks like the great white, the hammerhead, the whale shark, the black tipped shark and some other sea animals like the dolphins, the turtles and the sea horses. We walked around looking at the sea creatures and they were kept in very good pools with plenty of space. It was lovely that they educated people about saving endangered sharks. Have you ever seen a shark? What do you think of sharks? Which sea creatures do you most enjoy seeing?

Shark, no thanks, not for me. I never like them anyway. Look at how they eat up people and promote dangers in the sea to all the swimmers. it is just no good. I understand that they are a kinds of things that need to be in the sea to remain all those ecological cycle, but I jsut don't like them , that's all.Plus, by looking at my image, you will see what I like the most, dolphin......yes. I like cutie dolphin and all their lovely move.Sting ray? I like to eat them a lot in Singapore. B.B.Q style to cook sting ray is very famous food in Singapore. Delicious.

I have see two different sorts of dolphin in New Zealand. I got to fed a dolphin when I was in Western Australia. I really like your image of the dolphin. I found the sting rays to be friendly and they felt like velvet to touch. I have visited beautiful Singapore three times on my my travels.

You are very brave. I would have a heart attack if I saw a shark. I know they are not by nature aggressive but I am not one to tempt fate...lol..Those sting rays can be dangerous too. That's what killed that Steve guy. I guess it would depend on how threatened they were but I sure wouldn't want to take the chance. My cousin got stung by a jellyfish when I was little and we were visiting the ocean. That pretty much ruined me as far as bobbing around in the water with nature..lol.

I like to watch sharks, but do not want to be in water with them. I do love dolphins. My special needs son, has just taken a liking to watching them on tv. I am hoping we can take him somewhere, where he can really see them and interact with them.

"Have you ever seen a shark?" Yes, I've seen one once, back when I was 5 years old. It was a Great White that had been put in captivity temporarily in an aquarium in San Francisco. She was only there a week, I think. Thanks to my parents, I was able to visit her every day until she was released. There's some information about her at this link: http://oceanlink.island.net/biodiversity/shark/shark.html (Be sure to scroll down to "A Shark in Captivity".) "What do you think of sharks?" I think they are scary, but interesting! "Which sea creatures do you most enjoy seeing?" Orcas and dolphins. Happy mylotting!
