Nope, not kidding. It's not a normal website for use by just anybody.
It's a ( government? ) site which coordinates the fish collections of
various places which maintain a preserved fish collection for systematic
research. At least that's what I think it's for; it's not very
user-friendly. At any rate, the collection locations for the specimens
are listed right along with the specimens, and if you click on the blue
lat/long link, you'll get a Mapquest map showing the exact spot. I've
been having a blast with this thing. I checked out a few spots it
revealed, and sure enough, it works!

Why had I better be kidding?
