Bubba: The Super Grouper

This is a sketch of Bubba, a 140-pound Queensland grouper in the Wild Reef exhibit at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. A note near the exhibit said that Bubba was found in a cooler on the steps of the aquarium in 1987. Bubba is currently recovering from chemotherapy treatments for malignant cancer on his forehead. He is believed to be the first fish to undergo such treatments. You can read all about Bubba and his extraordinary fight against cancer at the Shedd Aquarium website.
