Anteater

Do your homework and be prepared to put with many surprises, if you consider an anteater as a pet. First of all, they don’t come cheap (up to $4,500) – and they need a special diet (unless you have an endless supply of ants, but even then, they need a supplement) Tamanduas are very loving, but just like cats, they tend to “let you” love them.

Art Reef

13,000 circular modules of limestone and concrete weighing 700 pounds each will spell ‘SAVE THE REEFS’ off the coast of Miami Beach to raise awareness and create a fish habitat.

The installment will take up an area the size of 40 football fields and be visible to planes flying into MIA.

”It will be the greatest fish habitat ever created by man” said Fort Lauderdale artificial reef builder Gary Levine who is in charge of the project.
