Remoras! Our Awesome Underwater Friends

Recently I've been having fun identifying some underwater creatures from scuba videos. I came across these torpedo shaped guys who were hitchhiking on a turtle. They're Remoras (or 'Sharksuckers') and they attach to other fish, turtles, whales, sharks, and rays with a 'suckerlike organ'. I think they're tremendously neat.
