This What's It Wednesday is the solar boxfish! They are noticed for the beautiful mosaic-like patterns covering their body.

Adult boxfish can dart around in the water with lightning-fast reflexes, but juveniles tend to stay in place, making it easier to photograph!

Travel can change you if you let it. We miss travelling with our students and we are so hopeful for 2021. This was a trip we ran to Belize. These are big moments and we hold on to them forever.

Do you know what this What's It Wednesday is?!

These little creatures may be fairly easy to find, but can be hard to grab a photo of thanks to their lightning-fast reflexes.
