Gabe became a Jr Ranger at the National seashore. 

-Learned that blue button jellies are harlmess to touch. Man - o - wars aren't a true jelly but thier sting is powerful

-Ranger Buzz helped him handle a dolphin skull and coyote skull. The coyote died during the red tide because it ate a fish that had too much of the algea in it

-While doing the shell matching activity, he learned about moon snails. They have a special tongue that acts as a drill. It leave small holes in the base of clam shells and eats the clam inside. We found our own moon snail shell on the beach.
