Yesterday, I took two of my grandsons to the St. Louis Science Center for the day. We started with the IMAX movie - Under the Sea.
One of the scenes in the movie was an amazing field of garden eels. These animals anchor themselves on the sea floor and then extend their bodies straight up so they can feed on the tiny sea creatures that float past. Here is a youtube tutorial I found. I apologize for the too close and slightly disturbing camera view of the narrator. And also for the 'ad by google' that will pop up. Just x it out. The info itself is facinating. In the IMAX movie, however, the eels were of a much, much large species.
On our way home we decided to stop at Maggie Moo's for ice cream, I took a different route that took us through an industrial park and past the headquarters of a large equipment company.
My grandson Sage yelled "Look MeeMaw! It looks like the eels in the movie!" And it did.
