    Pretty cool, I wish I did some of that when I was in California, but the ocean terrifies me.

    Cool, the highlight of my day was the grilled cheese sandwich I made.

    I almost touched a sea urchin when I first went diving, didn't know what it was. Apparently they are very painful.

    That and the sea snake. The sea snake fkn freaked me out (I have a snake fear), I would have beaten Phelps in any swim race.

    Sea snakes are some of the most poisonous animals in the world as well, also very aggressive.

    I know they're poisonous but heard they were not aggressive.

    per wiki

    Some have gentle dispositions and bite only when provoked, but others are much more aggressive. Currently, 17 genera are described as sea snakes,

    The only reason I know this much is because it recently sparked an interest.
