This thing was parked in one of the lots at Brookdale Community College. It’s rather large, and it’s not usually parked there (certainly not at eight in the morning), and it got my attention.

This particular feesh is a Grey or Mangrove Snapper, according to a sign on the wall above its aquarium.
Where did I find this funny fellow? There is a saltwater aquarium in the middle of the biology hallway of Edison Science Hall (of Monmouth University). From what I’ve been told by passing professors who like to educate me when they see me ogling all the crabs and feeshies, most of the critters in this aquarium come from the professors’ own expeditions.
(Also according to the sign above the aquarium:
RANGE: Massachusetts, USA to Brazil; Bermuda; Caribbean Sea
HABITAT: estuaries, rocky habitat, coral reefs, mangroves, enters fresh water
DIET: shrimp, crabs, squid, small fish
SIZE: to 89 cm TL, 20 kg)

For those who are squeamish, LOOK AWAY! Click here to get away from the grossness.
I dissected a cow heart today.
This photo was taken looking down the aorta.

Sometimes, a student might forget that Monmouth University is really a repurposed mansion/estate thing (previously known as Shadow Lawn).
How a student would forget this, when his/her classes are sometimes held in what were probably servant’s quarters, is beyond me…but this is a detail of a courtyard-thing in the middle of campus.
By the way–the City Daily Photo theme for January 1st is “photo of the year 2007,” so please tell me if you have any particular favorites you’d like me to post! (Exact dates are not necessary; if you can remember a brief description, just mention that.) There will be more news as this develops.
