As I have mentioned previously, last weekend I gave a couple of talks on sea creatures and how I’ve photographed them at Portsmouth Blue Reef Aquarium. For those who haven’t been, I would recommend it. It is not a large aquarium, but it does have some interesting stuff I haven’t seen elsewhere. One of these is this Mata Mata turtle Chelus fimbratus
They also have a successful breeding group of short-snouted seahorse Hippocampus hippocampus, a British seahorse species, which is threatened by various actions by man, makling captive breeding all the more important.
