Snowy Egret

A little boy asked his father, “Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?”

And the father replied, “I don’t know, son, I’m still paying for it.”

Interesting Fact: During the breeding season, adult Snowy Egrets develop long, wispy feathers on their backs, necks, and heads. In 1886 these plumes were valued at $32 per ounce, which was twice the price of gold at the time. Plume-hunting for the fashion industry killed many Snowy Egrets and other birds until reforms were passed in the early twentieth century. The recovery of shorebird populations through the work of concerned citizens was an early triumph and helped give birth to the conservation movement.

Atlantic Ghost Crabs

A lonely female crab was walking down the beach one evening when she noticed a male crab coming toward her.

But he was walking straight and not sideways! Impressed by his talent, she decided to marry him immediately.

The next morning she noticed him walking sideways like any ordinary crab!

She asked, “What happened? Yesterday you were able to walk straight!”

He answered “What?! I can’t get that drunk every day!”.

Interesting Fact: Atlantic Ghost Crabs can hold oxygen in their air sacs for about six weeks. The crab has club-shaped eyestalks and it boasts of a 360° vision. This helps it see and catch insects that are even in mid-air.  ( http://www.animalspot.net/ghost-crab-sand-crab.html )
