Roll call is falling short over at the New York Aquarium. According to a statement released yesterday by the Wildlife Conservation Society, some of the aquarium's fish collection were lost as a result of flooding and power outage in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Death by flood in an aquarium. ... huh. On the upside, it reported that "walruses, sea lions, seals, sea otters, sea turtles and sharks are all fine."

Everybody Needs A Hobby of the Day: Nottingham man Jack Heathcote is the proud owner of Britain's largest home aquarium.
