|Caleb, Laura and Bri introduce their classmates |
to the heteropod
As poetry has been a theme of our ship's meetings, we thought we would share a poem we wrote, inspired by this fantastic snail.
Song of the Heteropod
I was swimming in the ocean blue
enjoying a midnight snack
When I was captured by the Seaman's crew in a Neuston net attack
I was hauled upon the salty deck
and hurled into the tank
There the man of war had me a nervous wreck, and from his stinging grasp I shrank
"What could it be?" I heard the mammals ask "This creature is quite odd."
Then under the microscope light I did bask 'til they exclaimed, "It's a beautiful heteropod!"
Over and out!
-Bri, Caleb, and Laura C.
