Kyle, age (almost) 3
"I like the shark! He's really big and he's got sharp teeth."

Colton, age 5 and Macie, age 3
"I like the jellyfish because they sting like anemones. I've never been stung by one because you can only touch the tops of them and you won't get stung."

"I like Dory [the main character in the Disney film Finding Nemo]. She's a clownfish."

Lauren, age 9
"The jellyfsh because I like the way they look and how some of them can change colors."

Tanner, age 12 and Grace, age 7
"I like the giant squid. It's got a cool defense mechanism where it shoots out ink."
