Nice pictures!! Love the eel (in pictures only - scares me in person!)Thank you Jacki!

On one of my first visits to the natural pool (maybe 9 years ago) I spotted one resting at the pool's entrance. I thought it was a snake and jumped out:eek:! In preparation for this trip, for caution, I researched a little to find there are no sea snakes within thousands of miles of Aruba, and anything that resembles one is an eel. It was my goal to get a shot for this trip which I did;). I first spotted one at Boca Catalina and another located within the Radisson buoy's swimming area. I didn't have my camera with me at the time. On my second to last day on our vacation I set out to get a pic of the harmless creature, and finally did for the photo above.

HaHa:) Thanks!

I am a swimmer, and 99.9% of the time I'm in the water, it is chlorinated, while looking down at black tile markings.

re: the bird
i stuck my finger in the cage and he turned his head wanting a head rub just as in your photo!
my husband kept saying "get your finger outta there you will be bit!"
i assured him it was FINE.
he then stuck in his finger to give a pat and the bird chomped down and drew blood.........hahahahaha.
blood was drawn.
i still laugh about this.........paul, not so much.

The grey amazon and cockatoo I met before, they hopped towards the side and requested a pet. Done with caution and thoroughly washed hands of course.

There was a lot of seaweed on the northshore. Must be a seasonal thing?
