  • - Come on, come on, come here,

  • I think I got a small animal!

  • - Whaddya got?

  • - I got a seahorse!

  • - What, it's not a seahorse...

  • - I got a seahorse!

  • - Oh, did you really?

  • - Yeah!

  • - Are you kidding me?

  • - No, look!

  • (dramatic music)

  • (splashing)

  • - As the morning sun rose,

  • it cast a golden glow over the rolling dunes.

  • Waves crashed upon the sandy shores,

  • and as they receded one set at a time,

  • the water levels dropped, signaling the arrival of low tide.

  • I could sense adventure in the air,

  • and as I worked my way down the shoreline,

  • I looked out across the Atlantic Ocean,

  • and envisioned the challenge set before me.

  • Wow!

  • This is beautiful, look at this,

  • you got pelicans right back here,

  • and today we're at the Key Biscane Nature Center,

  • and we're gonna do something a little bit different.

  • To catch creatures today I'm actually gonna

  • bring the crew out there with me.

  • You guys are actually gonna put down the main cameras,

  • pick up Go Pros and nets.

  • There's a lot of water to cover

  • and the more nets we have in the water,

  • the better chance we have of finding some creatures.

  • Today's expedition Beyond the Tide is a little different,

  • as we will be working in conjunction

  • with the Biscayne Nature Center.

  • Located on the Northern end of Crandon Park,

  • this multi-functional center

  • is a not-for-profit organization

  • dedicated to environmental education

  • and citizen participation

  • in the protection of our natural environment.

  • Using dip-nets, our aim was to catch native species,

  • and present them in a controlled setting,

  • before releasing them back into the wild.

  • We were told that there were

  • many creatures we could come across,

  • but nothing was more coveted than the elusive seahorse.

  • So, with nets in the water, the search was on.

  • (mellow music)

  • - [Mark] Let me see, what'd you get?

  • - [Mario] We got a little lobster!

  • - [Mark] Oh my gosh!

  • (lighthearted music)

  • - [Mario] I got a shrimp!

  • What'd you catch, Coyote?

  • Lemme see.

  • - [Coyote] Oh, yeah.

  • - [Mario] Ah ostraciidae, that's cool.

  • Yeah, put them in the bucket.

  • - [Mark] Come on, seahorse!

  • - [Mario] We got a pipefish!

  • - [Mark] No way!

  • - [Mario] He was wiggling right through.

  • - [Mark] Look at that!

  • Oh man, that's awesome!

  • - We're one step closer to a seahorse.

  • - [Mark] Hey, great find.

  • - Same family.

  • - [Mark] Yeah, that was awesome.

  • Look at all those fish!

  • Nice!

  • You're doin' great!

  • - [Mario] Ah here's a cool one.

  • He's really puffed up.

  • - Oh, man, he's beautiful.

  • - Know what this is missing?

  • - A seahorse.

  • - Definitely, gotta catch a seahorse.

  • - [Mark] Coyote.

  • - Yeah?

  • - [Mark] You got competition, man.

  • - Wow, look at all those kids.

  • They got 'em out here trying to catch seahorses for us.

  • This is a lot harder than I thought.

  • I thought we'd catch lots of seahorses.

  • We've gone quite a ways, covered some serious ground,

  • found all sorts of cool creatures.

  • We got pipefish, puffer fish,

  • file fish, all fish, we need a seahorse,

  • which is also technically a fish.

  • And a horse, I guess, at the same time.

  • All right, keep searching.

  • - [Mark] Come on, come on, come here,

  • I think I got a small animal!

  • - Whaddya got?

  • - [Mark] I got a seahorse!

  • - What, it's not a seahorse...

  • - [Mark] I got a seahorse!

  • - Oh, did you really?

  • - [Mark] Yeah!

  • - Are you kidding me?

  • - [Mark] No, look!

  • - [Coyote] No way!

  • - [Mark] Aw, man, look at that!

  • That is our star animal!

  • - [Coyote] We got it!

  • - [Mark] We got a seahorse!

  • - Wow! You did it!

  • - Yeah!

  • That's a wrap, folks!

  • We'll I'd say it's a success, we have two buckets

  • full of little sea creatures,

  • but the most important thing is we caught a seahorse.

  • Yeah!

  • Look at all of these sea creatures!

  • - [Mark] We did really well!

  • - We did amazing!

  • Considering the fact we were only out there

  • in the seagrass for about an hour.

  • Look at all of these creatures!

  • Okay, now we're not going to go into detail

  • about all of these animals,

  • but I at least wanted to take a look

  • and get them up close for the camera for just a second

  • and then we're gonna get on to our star feature creature.

  • Okay, now these are trunkfish, or cowfish,

  • but because these are so little, these are babies,

  • they're actually adorably referred to as peafish.

  • I mean that is about the cutest little fish I've ever seen.

  • I'm gonna turn him like this.

  • Look at his little face.

  • - [Mark] Look at his little beak.

  • - He's got that little trunk up front,

  • those big, buggy eyes and obviously it's that

  • green coloration that gives them the name peafish.

  • I know, you wanna get back in the water,

  • here we go, plop!

  • Bloop!

  • There you go.

  • Now those are file fish. Check that out.

  • They're very flat, which I imagine

  • that's where they get their name from, filefish,

  • and they have a really distinct horn on top of their heads.

  • Come here, little fishy.

  • Woah, they're quick.

  • Woah!

  • He jumped right outta there!

  • See, when you zoom in on the top of his head there...

  • You see that?

  • That, there you go, you see that?

  • - [Mark] Yeah.

  • - Keep your focus there.

  • There you go, now you can see it.

  • Woah, woah, woah, I feel ya.

  • He wants to get back in the water.

  • There you go.

  • Plopped him right back in there.

  • Now we have to keep all of these sea creatures in water.

  • You'll notice that each and every one of them

  • is I fresh seawater, and in case you're wondering,

  • yes they all will be released back out into the wild

  • once we take a close look.

  • Okay should we keep it with fish?

  • - [Mark] Yeah let's stick with fish.

  • - Okay, which one do you guys wanna look at next?

  • - [Mark] How about that spiky one over there?

  • - Oh, yes, the porcupine puffer fish.

  • Now when we caught him he was deflated,

  • and as soon as they get agitated, they puff up their bodies.

  • They're incredibly sharp.

  • Let me get him out of here.

  • He's gonna stay puffed up until we release him

  • back out into the ocean.

  • And he's a lot heavier than you would think,

  • so just keeping him in the palm of my hand...

  • My fingers are all wrinkly, you see this,

  • from being in the ocean water all day,

  • and that makes my fingers much more susceptible

  • to those spines.

  • He feels like a little pincushion.

  • Non-venomous, but go ahead,

  • Mark put your hand out there,

  • I'm gonna actually place it, put your hand flat.

  • - [Mark] Oh, okay.

  • - And tell everybody, he's actually heavy, isn't he?

  • - [Mark] Oh! Yeah, spiky!

  • Yeah, it weighs...

  • So, I'm guessing that's not just air.

  • - No, that's not just air,

  • he's got water inside of his body.

  • (squeak)

  • Oh! You hear him squeakin'?

  • He's squeakin'!

  • Now, when it's deflated, it looks like a normal fish,

  • and the coolest defense about these creatures

  • is that obviously they're capable of puffing up

  • into a spiky ball.

  • They've actually found sharks before that have died

  • from eating one of these fish.

  • They get it into their mouth and then, ppfft!

  • It puffs up like a balloon, and you can imagine

  • how painful that would be to have a throat full of spikes.

  • And while your camera's down there, Mark,

  • you see this other fish that we have?

  • That is a scorpionfish.

  • - [Mark] Ooh, sounds bad.

  • - [Coyote] Yeah, they have spines

  • on their back pectoral fins.

  • I'm not going to pick it up because if I do

  • I will be stung and it's incredibly painful.

  • - [Mark] So is a scorpionfish at all like an angler fish?

  • I notice it has an appendage on the front of its mouth.

  • - [Coyote] No, angler fishes use those appendages

  • of the front of their faces to lure in prey.

  • These appendages growing off the scorpionfish

  • are more used for camouflage.

  • They are ocean floor dwelling fish,

  • and it's more like a gobi in the way

  • that it will move across the bottom,

  • and that's how people oftentimes run across these fish.

  • If they're on the bottom of the ocean floor,

  • and you're barefoot and you're walking,

  • and you step on this...

  • Yeah, you're gonna be in some serious pain.

  • You know who we forgot?

  • - [Mark] The little puffer?

  • - [Coyote] The little puffer, he's hiding in there.

  • - [Mark] He's hiding by the scorpionfish for protection.

  • - [Coyote] See, he's clever.

  • Here let me move...

  • This is a little risky here.

  • Oh boy, oh boy.

  • Okay, check this out.

  • This little pufferfish,

  • watch if I just kinda tickle his belly...

  • Up, up, up, up!

  • Look at that!

  • - [Mark] Is that air or water?

  • - [Coyote] That is air.

  • That is air that he just...

  • That little chirping noise is him sucking in the air.

  • There you go, up, up, up, up, up!

  • - [Mark] Let's see what else we have.

  • Let's move on from fish.

  • What else do we have besides fish?

  • - Let's look at some of the crustaceans.

  • Now, I caught this one.

  • This is just a little, tiny baby, but that is a spider crab.

  • That is a little, tiny, baby spider crab.

  • - [Mark] Why is it called a spider crab?

  • - [Coyote] Because of its legs.

  • They look like a spider when they're walking.

  • - [Mark] Do those stay small or do they grow?

  • - No, these grow.

  • They can grow to be pretty large, actually,

  • I mean, big, huge, huge.

  • - [Mark] No way!

  • - Huge crabs, yeah.

  • - [Mark] But those wouldn't be out here in the--

  • - No, they're out deep.

  • They're out deep.
