Over the past few years of exploration and study I have seen far more mysterious, beautiful and amazing beings than the collective fictional works of Steven Spielberg (E.T, Jurassic Park) George Lucas (Star Wars) and Jim Henson (Muppets, Labyrinth) combined. Real and documented creatures from some of the world’s most inhospitable environments and from the darkest depths of the seven seas that resemble something more extra terrestrial looking than you’d find in a science fiction comic book.
My name is Tom Hooker and I’m the new Creature Curiosities blogger for Saint Kidd.
I invite you to come aboard on my adventure each week as we dive into the wonderful world of the planets most interestingly ugly, advanced, adapted and amazing animals and get to the bottom of some of those timelessly classic tales of a pirates life.
Name: Tom Hooker
Job: Marine Zoologist
Weirdest thing you’ve ever done:
Had a man dressed as a penguin bring the rings down the aisle at my wedding!
Most days you’ll find me…:
Chilling in the pool, soaking up the rays with my boys Morgan, Aero and Crusoe down in sunny North Devon – Oh, did I mention that Morgan and the boys are all California Sea Lions?
Simpsons character you most look like: Hank Scorpio – Super Villain, Philanthropist.
Favourite Saint Kidd shirt: Blow Me Down
Tom Hooker will be blogging weekly from Saint Kidd. Come back every friday to read his curious findings from the animal kingdom. @TomAlexHooker
