I was lucky enough to spend a week in the Komodo National Park. Most people know about the dragons, but visitors (and me!) are usually there for the under-water life. Every sea creature imaginable. And manta rays, lots of manta rays. It didn't disappoint, essentially the perfect week!

Each manta ray can be identified by the pattern on its stomach, and most of them are named. If interested, anyone can name a manta by making a donation to a manta conservation group. I'm not sure how they picked this sample...and the names are a bit hard to read in the picture...but there are some good ones. I especially like Winnie the Pooh and Dr. Evil.

It's a little ridiculous how long it took me to figure out how to spell aquarium
