This fish lives in the coral reefs surrounding the Hawaiian Islands. It is a fish that I used to love to find as a small child, and it has the coolest name.

In Louisiana these crustaceans build tiny little towers that dot the cow pastures. They make a wonderful meal and are quite fun to try and catch.
