Listening Guide with Comments, Pictures, and Links for this Week's Pet Fish Talk Show
Segment One. 
Fish in the News. Each week the Bailey Brothers start the Pet Fish Talk Show with some fun and interesting stories about fish in the news.

Bubba, the Lobster, the guy on the left!   Mike Brittsan, curator at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, sent Bubba the lobster to Maine, after Myranda Hutchinson, 7, won it and wanted to set it free.

an 11-year-old California Sea Lion, paints for dead fish with the help of Kesha Phares.
Follow up: Monterey Bay's New Great White Shark.
Keeping a great white shark in captivity has been ... so difficult that just 10 public aquariums in the world have attempted it. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is the only one to succeed. The white shark introduced to the Outer Bay exhibit on Sept. 1 has drawn the largest one-day crowd in the aquarium's history and could become as big a blockbuster as its predecessor, which helped attract 1 million visitors during the 198 days it was in captivity.

Cincinnati Girl’s Wish of Setting Prized Lobster Free.
All Myranda Hutchinson wanted to do was to free Bubba. Thanks to a bit of chance, someone at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium "knowing a guy," and Myranda’s parents paying $280 for a plane ride, Bubba scuttled away into the Atlantic Ocean yesterday. The 7-year-old’s quest to free Bubba the lobster ended in Bar Harbor, Maine, though she was in school in Cincinnati at the time — 1,100 miles away. Myranda won the lobster at Bigg’s Eastgate grocery store in Cincinnati. The store was giving the nearly 8-pound lobster away as part of the store’s anniversary bash. Click here to read this story.
Maggie: Sea Lion and Artist Paints for Fish.

Some artists suffer for their work. Maggie, an 11-year-old sea lion at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, gets to eat dead fish for hers. Kesha Phares, a zoo trainer, has been teaching the animal to paint since last year. Click here to read this story.

Tiny Fish is Key to Evolution of Human Immune System.
Armed at first with nothing more than boots, a screen and a bucket, scientists studying a tiny primitive fish that makes up 70 percent of the biomass in Tampa Bay now say they have found the “missing link” marking the point in evolution that led to the development of the modern-day human immune system.

Tiny Fish Learn to Sniff Out Predators.

When threatened, minnows bunch together, swim slower and make quick darting movements to fake out their predators. How close they group together and how often they dart depends on the level of the threat. Is it just one pike fish or many? Are they far away or dangerously near? But sometimes vision isn't enough to tell the minnows these things, so the small fish rely on another tactic: They sniff the water for scents of their predators. A new study, detailed in the October issue of the journal Animal Behavior, reveals that a minnow's sense of smell is so sophisticated that it can pick out the odor of a single predator pike fish among many.

40 New Species Found in the Amazon.
An international team of scientists risked their lives to discover 40 new species of plants and animals in a recent exploration of the Amapa region of Brazil. The Times of London said despite a few of its members nearly being eaten by hungry animals, the scientific team ultimately exited the nearly unspoiled South American area with thousands of specimens representing dozens of new and intriguing species. Among those species discovered were a bird and a tree rat, which the scientists were elated to find as new avian and mammal species are rare discoveries. Dr. Enrico Bernard, who led the ... group in Brazil, said the exploration gave his group a chance to see an area of the world that has been a virtual no-man's land. Click here to read this story. Yes, it was from Spenser, who gets our thanks for lots of fishy news.
Pollution Affects Ratio of Males to Females in Fish.  
61 percent of zebra fish spawned into males under regular oxygen conditions, under hypoxic conditions, the number of males increased to 75 percent," said Rudolf Wu, chair of biology at the university. This is the first study ever to suggest that hypoxia can affect sex development, differentiation and ratio in any animal species. It was published in the May issue of the journal Environmental Science & Technology. Click here to read the rest of this story, which was sent to us by Spenser !!
Teddy Bear Slaughters 2,500 Trout.
A teddy bear dropped into a pool in a New Hampshire fish farm managed to kill 2,500 trout, The Mercury News reports. The killer cuddly toy, "dressed in a yellow raincoat and hat", blocked a drain at the Fish and Game Department's hatchery in Milford and suffocated the pond's piscine residents.
