Winner of Puffer of the Year, 2008!!

Post by Myaj » Wed Dec 31, 2008 11:42 pm

And we are finally here! Time to vote between the winners of our monthly puffer photo contests from the entire year, to appoint the supreme champion!! The winner receives extreme bragging rights and a $25 gift certificate to The Puffer Store.

This year, due to not getting started until Feb, we will only have 11 contestants. Each thumbnail opens up to a full size image when clicked on, so feel free to view them at full size to help make your decision. Vote wisely, as you will not be able to change your vote.

I like burrowing in the fine sand and pretend that I'm ambushing someone while I'm in partial disguise. I gotta say I don't like it so much when the prickly hermit crab walks all over me as if I don't exist though. Ugh! I wonder if I'm really that hard to tell apart from the sand, or that he's got horrible eyesight.
