Wow! An incredible #PhotoFriday shot by @allamasr of a dwarf cuttlefish. #DidYouKnow that cuttlefish, like all cephalopods, have blue/green blood? This is because it’s copper-based, not iron-based like human blood.

#DidYouKnow that sea #otters spend about 15% of their day grooming? They're not just doing it to look good! The fur insulates their bodies by trapping tiny air bubbles and keeping a layer of air between the outer surface and their skin. If the fur becomes dirty, it loses its insulating qualities, allowing water to penetrate all the way to the skin. Brrrr!

Avoiding pesticides, conserving water in your home and sweeping your sidewalks and driveway instead of hosing them down are just a few small changes you can make to help create a healthy watershed.
