When I was little I had a comb shaped like a sea-horse - not seen one since! Starfish are also pretty awesome.

I would really love to be able to talk to a whale sometime, because I think they would probably have really interesting worldviews.

That said, I think octopi might be my favorite, because they're so weird and alien, but also clearly, highly intelligent. Like, an octopus in a tank can memorize the schedule of the aquarium guards, wait until one passes by the door, break out of their tank to the other side of the room, eat the fishies in there and skitter back before the guard's next round.

They have a troubling ability to plan complex actions...but can also squish through a space the size of a quarter, I think.

They're just ridiculous creatures all around.

There are so many neat sea creatures, but my favorite is probably the whale or the seal. I've been fortunate enough to see both on a whale watching expedition in Maine. They are both truly wonderful, awe-inspiring animals

Octopuses are fascinating, too - and highly intelligent.

Do mermaids count?! No? :( OK, then I guess I would have to say dolphins. There are many oceanic creatures that are beautiful to look at, many that are intelligent, but dolphins are the ones best known for being friendly and interacting with humans. I have yet to see one up close, but I'd really like to.

I will be 100% honest with this reply: sea creatures scare me to death. They are majestic and beautiful, along with serving a greater purpose in our eco-system. However, when I hear the words 'sea creature', I think big, HUGE, and capable of eating my entire body in one, little bite. No, thank you! I will say watching sharks... from afar... on the television. :techie-studyinggray:

Happy reading!

I love turtles and the way they swim through the water. I have done a lot of diving and developed a love for a sea creature I never thought I would - the eel!! They are very interesting to watch move through the water, can be huge and very inquisitive.

Definitely the dolphins. It's fascinating how even if they are limited by their anatomical structures, they have survived quite well in the ocean.
