My book says 'rare in Belize' but they seem to be everywhere I look on Ambergris Caye.

Today is one of those days when the sea is like glass and you can see every detail of the bottom as you pass in the boat. Wonderful ride to work today, spotted eagle rays ,starfish and dolphin all before 7am.

THAT'S the photo everyone should see who doesn't understand or appreciate turtle/sea grass. I thought someone on this board once said they saw baby seahorses in the turtle grass too. I never realized how much sea life lives in that grass. Beautiful picture.

Paul Humann wrote the definitive books on marine life identification, Reef Creature is the name of this one . He also wrote 'Reef Fish','Reef Coral' and 'Reef Fish Behavior.
Around the shop we call it the ,'WhatTheHellisit' book.
well worn copies at the dive shop all the time.
