Feeding Nuka at NY Aquarium

Wow, that is awesome! The eyes look pink.

She’s blind. They have the tendency to go sun blind from being out in the sun all the time. They are amazing creatures, though. Feeding them was such a pleasure and an honor.

That one looks like a lot of people have had the honor of feeding it...it’s huge! I didn’t realize they go blind from being in the sun all the time.

LOL Nuka is a pretty big girl. She’s so sweet. It’s pretty funny; they don’t have teeth, so they actually just inhale the fish. It’s like getting your hand stuck in a vacuum cleaner hose...

Hey Danny,

How did you wind up feeding my best girl, Nuka, at the Aquarium? I used to assist the animal handlers when I was on the Volunteer Dive Team and Nuka was hands-down my fav. Otis, the sea lion, is a special boy, too.

Come on Marti - you already know the answer to that. I’m Danny! I’m down with all the big girls...wait, that didn’t come out right. :)

LOL - Yeah, you might want to rethink the wording a bit...
