SAT stands for me (Samantha Anne Thomas)
In a next life I will be a Marine Mammalogist. For now, when I am not searching the horizon for Orcas or other cetaceans, I geek out on the smaller intertidal creatures.
Exhibit A: The Sea Star
I was quickly corrected by local marine enthusiasts that the Starfish is no longer the common name for these distinctively shaped creatures. Marine scientists have replaced the name with Sea Star because they are not fish, but echinoderms. The adaptability of sea stars goes beyond their intense colors exhibited to the ability to regenerate limbs.
Some other typical findings:
Exhibit B: Barnacles
Exhibit C: Seashell
Commonly found on beaches around the world the exoskeletons (shells) are popular findings of beachcombers, including myself.
