This afternoon (1-5 PM) was dedicated to just working on cataloging species. Yes, 4 hours of classifying dead sharks reeking of alcohol. It was fun until you started feeling the effects of the strong stench of alcohol in the room. I have to admit that I got a little light-headed after a few hours.
We classified a lot more than 3 specimens today! We classified I think 16 today. Yeah, be amazed. We were flying through those things. And we still have around 40 to go...
Sharpnose sevengill shark
Atalantic sharpnose shark
Scalloped hammerhead shark
Tiger shark (smallest tiger shark I've ever seen; it was so cute)
Phew, that was a doozy. Those were the specimens from today! I hope you get a kick out of them! Many, many more to come.
