Watch Dory. Don't Buy Her. She's Fragile in the Wild

Did you know that the real Dory is a Pacific blue tang, and is now being illegally collected and kept as pets?  Well, it is a beautiful fish, and the character is charming in the Finding Nemo films, BUT

"They graze algae on coral reefs, which is a very important job because it prevents the corals from being overgrown," said behavioral ecologist, Culum Brown.
