Ep.220 Stuck In A Cave

We are still at Iguana Island and explore the lagoon out front. I come face to face with 2 large dog snappers and an oyster cruncher (Pompano) but I leave them alone since they are too big for the 2 of us to eat and look for something smaller. Meanwhile Margarida chases a schoolmaster snapper into a cave. I get a bit worried when I see she may have difficulty getting out of the cave so I yank on a flipper and she comes out with a bump on the ass and on her head. She is not too impressed but ends up getting her first small snapper so she forgets the bumps.
