My dream. I don’t have what it takes to make a living on it… but as a hobby, my dream is to swim in an aquarium. I don’t care if I’ll just be cleaning it. Just please, someday, I want to be a mermaid in an aquarium.
Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler Appreciation Post
my friend has one of these and she is literally the most affectionate, smart, and needy dog I have ever met. These puppies are too cute. I can’t.

Mermaid Chelsea and Denise for the upcoming Weeki Wachee’s 2014 Calendar by Andrew Brusso.
The real reason I want to be a mermaid…they’re just so gorgeous. (Although these women are beautiful, too!)
I was bored and scrolling through Pinterest when I came across a pin about using mason jars as “tanks” for beta fish. Then I saw the related pins and I’m so disgusted.
Fish are animals that deserve proper care and respect.
Live animals are not decorations. They are not here to make your house look “cool” or “pretty.” If you can’t properly house or care for an animal don’t get it.
This is absolutely sick and this trend needs to stop.
I know this isn’t really ocean related but this is super important.
Just the fact that people think its okay to do this to their betta just grosses me out… ugh.
Once again, all beings deserve a certain level of respect.
I understand that Jezebel is a biased source, however, I do not care who you are or how you were reared. Whether it’s another human, a cat, or a manatee, beings deserve a certain level of respect. It is hard to make me upset, but certain things do. I do respect this woman in her fight both for her bravery in the face of sexual violence war-fare as well as for the figure-head she has become. Whether or not you agree with what she says, nothing gives anyone the right to treat another being so disgustingly.

Aren’t they a cute couple? <3 Nami and Urf swimming in the sea.
Maybe I’ll also make a gif of those two and their friends - let me surprise you! ;-)
Manatee Migration Routes by Species!
There is a webcam for the oldest manatee, like, ever. Snooty! Snooty turned 65 last october. Check out this webcam during the aquarium’s open hours.
