Roy's Postcards: 1984/11/01
Leonard, I went to the Waikiki Aquarium this afternoon and saw this sea life. It was a lot like the Marine Museum except it had 2 seals.
I love you-
WAIKIKI AQUARIUM top left, Nautilus pompilius, the Waikiki Aquarium became the first U.S. aquarium to display these rare living fossils in 1976; top right, Tridacna gigas, weighing 300 lbs., this giant clam is the only one of its kind on display in the world; bottom left, Pseudochromis porphyreus, the purple dotty-back from Palau on display in the South Pacific gallery; and bottom right, Anthias ventralis, the long-finned bass, a rare specimen from deep Hawaiian reefs.

2 seals, huh? I'm pretty sure we went to this aquarium when I visited Hawaii becauase I remember seeing the giant clam. It left quite an impression on me because there's a giant clam in Colossal Cave.
