This crabby-looking fellow likes to run around on the sand. And with all those legs he's quite good at it.

Check out my crab coloring page.   You'll find this guy and several of his leggy friends waiting to put the pinch on you! 

Sea Turtle Coloring Pages

Wouldn't it be a thrill to find a loggerhead turtle hatchling like this one?  Imagine, strolling along the beach and discovering such a treasure.

Not very likely.  But you can color your own tiny terrapin!  Or a hawksbill or green sea turtle or other.

I'd like to hang out with this guy.  This manatee kinda looks like an over-stuffed toy animal.  Don't you just want to hug it?

Awww, how cute, a momma orca with her calf.  Looks like their ideal ocean spot might be a tad too chilly for humans.

Probably won't see them near your favorite beach. 

But you can always catch a killer whale performance at Sea World.  They're amazingly graceful.  Plus it's fun to get splashed!

Ocean Coloring Pages of Reef and Deep Sea Fish

There are indeed many fish in the sea.  And here's one now!  You may recognize this famous fish.

She was in a movie about her lost friend.  He's not here yet.  But they'll soon be reunited!

Then you'll be able to color them both.  And meet some of the strange inhabitants of the deep!

The fish everyone loves to fear!  Sharks swim among us but don't usually molest us.

But your imagination sure can runaway with you when you get bumped by a beast at the beach!
