My son loves to keep tadpoles, and it appears that mostly they eat
algae. A LOT of algae.

I wouldn't be surprised if someday some fishermen caught a
big shark and cut it open, and there inside was a whole person.
Then they cut the person open, and in him is a little baby
shark. And in the baby shark there isn't a person, because
it would be too small. But there's a little doll or something,
like a Johnny Combat little toy guy---something like that.
