Flora and Fauna of Roma

In the course of walking around Rome, we've spotted a number of interesting items that make a good story or raise an interesting question. For instance, but a few steps from where we are staying at UST's Bernardi Campus, the Ponte Matteotti sports this wonderful sign describing the various animals and plants that call the Tiber, Rome's famous river, home.

As promising as that appears, the Tiber, at least since I arrived, appears about as green as the Chicago River on St. Patrick's Day. In short, I think this placard is rather optimistic, but, I'm not Marine Biologist - I'm just an aspiring Theologian.
