Fish Form and Function Snorkel
Are all fish really the same? We explore why fish are shaped and colored as they are, discovering that there is a very specific purpose behind what we consider weird body shapes and color patterns. Jump into this snorkel adventure and have fun while you explore why fish look so different and how those differences reflect something about their lives.
