Where's the calibration? Shucks, the tail fin is a bit messed up.

I think I've worked on four of the cleared fishes. Or at least close relatives. But on the opposite coast. I think I would have bought a calendar. Does it give the species names?

Interested readers (including Dr. Summers, who probably already knows about this) would like to visit:
