Shark Friday

Argghhh! Mommy has decided to hijack our blog again today and every Friday and feature a different animal OTHER THAN PUGS!!!!! The nerve of that woman...

Hi everyone! I had so much fun with Llama Friday last week that I decided to feature a different animal each Friday. Today is the shark in memory of the Bonnethead Sharks that were lost at the Indy Zoo this past week...http://www.indyzoo.com/pdf/BonnetheadSharks.pdf
They are kind of like hammerheads, but a lot smaller and the face is more rounded, but they still have the funky eyes that protrude on each side. I had a hard time getting pictures of them because it is so dark in the area where they have been kept and the flash kept reflecting off the glass... This picture is blurry, but I think it's still pretty cool because of the shadow. You can get a better idea of the head shape in this one...
The Indy Zoo also has a shark petting tank. These are Dog Sharks and they are non-aggressive, so you can actually reach in and touch them!
They are small sharks and don't look anything like dogs!
They had this really strange behavior of sticking their noses up out of the water. It was like they were trying to take a look around above water...
Here's Sam posing in front of the tank...
And here's Denny petting a shark...
There are a lot of these little guys in the tank...
I still wouldn't want to go swimming with them!!!
Eddie goes to the vet for the first time tomorrow. I'm going to have to take pictures with me because the vet will not believe that he is the same dog who was skin and bones just a week ago! He is looking so good and he is so happy! And he is consistently sitting on command (sorry Kelly)!!! I'm sure Ernie will be posting tomorrow or Sunday to let you all know how Eddie does!
Have a great weekend!!!
Pug hugs and kisses!

I swam with dog sharks in the Caymans! There were tons of sting rays and we were petting and holding and feeding them in the wild!! The dog sharks come around kind of afterwards to eat the stuff the rays left behind. Fun post!
