There are some people you converse with on Twitter for so long that they seem like old friends-- and that's just the case with Chuck Bangley! Chatting with him for this interview felt like catching up with an old friend... and we hope that you feel that way by the end of this special post.
Ever heard of the Bullnose Ray (Myliobatis freminvillii)? No? Don’t feel bad – you aren’t the only one! This is a little-known eagle ray with a wide distribution across the western Atlantic ocean all the way from Cape Cod down to Argentina. If you live in certain parts of the western central Atlantic ocean, you may not have this critter call your waters home, though.
TFUI Founder Melissa has a soft spot for roughsharks… just because they are so unique in their looks. The Caribbean roughshark, Oxynotus caribbaeus, is no exception to this. It’s a rare, small, deepwater benthic shark that has been recorded from the Gulf of Mexico, Honduras and Venezuela.
TFUI Founder Melissa C. Marquez is author of all animal bios and "Behind the Fins" segments.
