Hello Janet. This page contains links to all of the possible photographic additions to the book. Previously sent links include manta1
, and manta3
as possible additions or replacements for the Chapter 13 photo depicting the Flower Gardens. A recent toadfish
photo was also sent to Tris as a possible addition or replacement for the Chaptar 13 photo of the Florida Panhandle (Emerald Coast). I also sent a link to a wide angle photo of an oil rig
as a possible compliment or replacement for the photo depicting Louisiana oil rigs.
Chapter 9 includes a section on hazardous marine animals. A photo of fire coral has already been sent to you. I was recently able to get a detail of the hair-like filaments on fire coral
that contain the stinging nematocysts. A photo of a stingray buried in sand
as described in the text might also be an addition to the hazardous marine animal section of Chapter 9. Another possible addition to the hazardous marine animal section of Chapter 9 could be this photo of a sharptail eel
. Sharptail eels are harmless, but misinformed divers sometimes mistake them for sea snakes. This photo could be included in the section on moray eels.
Of course, should you decide to use any of these photos, a large .tif file similar to the ones already provided will be sent to you.
