Gary (not Gary W, but perhaps Gary F, Gary K, Gary B, or the other Gary B? Identify yourself!) left a comment on my last post, The New Addition, weighing in on the meaning of Dagodol's name. He wrote: "Dagon meaning "fish" was an idol of the Philistines."
Though I haven't been a great fan of the reality show "Philistinian Idol", the name does in fact, go back to Biblical seafaring times. "Dag" means fish, and "Gadol" means big. The phrase is used in the book of Jonah, referring to the great fish that swallowed that unfortunate prophet. So, my little betta fish has some big fins to fill.
Y'all did so great with the guessing, though, that I thought I'd give you a second quiz, featuring pics from my trip to Capitol Aquarium.
Your task is to match the species to the picture: Black Ribbon Eel, Stargazer, and Dogface Puffer. Ready, GO!
First response with three correct answers gets a high five from yours truly!
