Diet

The Vaquita eats a wide range of small fish and squid. All of the 17 fish species that have been found in Vaquita stomachs can be classified as Demersal and/or Benthic species living in relatively shallow water in the northern Gulf of California.

The Little Cow That Could

I know it is a little late, but I would like to show you a post that a cool guy named Brett Fish wrote about me in December called “The Little Cow That Could.”  His article is extremely important to me. He is a very inspiring writer, and I insist you check out the rest of his blog as well.
