|This wasn't the mysterious sea creature, although he was strangely calm, and came really close to our boat. Bonus points if you can identify this bird!|

I did a little internet research, and came up with some information on this creature. It is definitely a strange one. I think it is totally fascinating. I have seen them before, but I didn’t know they could get this big. As it turns out, back when I was at UBC, I had a professor who had devoted his life to studying these guys, mainly so he could do all his research in tropical places.
|Here's a hint - they come in many sizes, usually smaller than this, and are often brilliantly coloured.|
Anyway, instead of just telling you all about it, I thought we could take this blog to the next level, and make it interactive. Why don’t you take the time to see if you can figure out what this is? Post whatever you find in the comments section below, or send it to me via Facebook or email, and I will post your comments for you.
All I’ll tell you is that it was brownish in color, and about 8 to 10 inches long. You can’t really tell how big it is from the pictures and video.
Whoever comes up with the best answer, as judged by a panel of impartial experts (me) wins the internet for the day. Good luck!
