    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.

    Ahhhh, I grew up next to swamps and slow running muddy creeks and loved it - any little body of water - I was entranced with - what's in there swimming ... my goal was salamanders, however I normally caught snapping turtles and assortment of bugs, etc.

    A tidal pool ... ahhh.

    Even as an adult I still have that craving to go over to the edge and peer in ....

    Cool.

    maybe I should go for a bike ride and see if I can find some tidal pools instead of lazing the day away on BF.

    Dude - I would so set up a salt water aquarium and stock it with critters from tide pools if I was close to one. You could use natural sea water in the tank too instead of the synthetic salt mixes, pick up natural "live rock" for the tank instead of paying $10/pound for it. Although you have to take care not to play with things that can kill you - esp. in New Zealand. (Blue ring octopus, box jellyfish, cone snails...)

    All those nasties live in Australian waters. I don't think that we have any highly poisonous species lurking in our inter-tidal zone.

    I think the blue ring octopus and cone snails could be there. I've seen both show up in shipments of live rock when I used to work at an aquarium store. Both are very pretty animals. If you get bit by a blue ring you can survive if you're put on a ventilator (or receive mouth to mouth) until the toxin wears off. Cone snail venom kills you about a dozen different ways, so you get nailed by one of the really bad species you're done.
