You can post all kinds of animal species which are part of the marine life, whether ocean fishes, marine mammals, sea birds, sea turtles and reptiles, cephalopods (octopus, squid, etc.) and other sea mollusks (shellfish, sea snail, etc.), marine echinoderms (starfish, urchin, sea cucumber, etc.), crustaceans (lobster, shrimp, etc.) and other marine arthropods, cnidaria (jellyfish, coral, etc.), etc. Zoological names are helpful to find the correct pictures and information to share (and for "problematic letters", especially X, Q, U and Z).

Who doesn't love Nemo, an anemonefish, or, more precisely, a clownfish (Amphiprion)?

This is for A ...
