Reticulation1843 viewsI couldn't get these Zebras to look at me so I had to settle for their butts. The pattern of black and white reminded me of a process in film developing called "Reticulation" where tiny cracks are formed in the films emulsion.

Honu’ea1841 viewsTaken 4/7/06
Honu’ea or Hawksbill Turtle is native to Hawai’i. The species is considered to be endangered but is slowly growing thanks to conservation efforts particularly on the Big Island of Hawai’i where they are protected by law. The Hawksbill can grow up to 250 pounds and feeds mostly on green sea moss or sponges. Their nesting period runs from July to October. Building the nest and laying eggs takes several hours and they can easily be seen along the coast.

The Indian Mongoose was originally brought to Hawaii in 1883. It was believed that the mongooses (no, not mongeese) would help control the rising Rat population on the Islands, but the mongoose is mostly active during the day while the rats were active at night and they didn't have much of an impact on the rats.
