Finding Nemo

Dory finds Nemo and brings him to Marlin. Nemo nearly dies saving a group of fish. Nemo and Marlin have a touching reunion, and then Dory, Nemo, and Marlin all return home where Marlin now has lots of trust in Nemo and they live happily ever after.

Factual error: The film is explicitly set on the east coast of Australia. However Nigel is a Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis), a species only found in the Americas. The only pelican species found in Australia is the Australian Pelican (Pelecanus conspicillatus) which is mainly white, with black wing tips. If a Brown pelican was somehow transported to Australia and subsequently escaped into the wild, it would have been caught and destroyed under Australia's strict quarantine laws.

Trivia: The dentist's name, P. Sherman, is a homage to the many Filipino crew members, whose native accent made the English word 'fisherman' sound like P. Sherman.

Question: What kind of bird is Nigel? He looks a lot like an Albatross to me.

Chosen answer: Nigel is a pelican - he appears to be modelled on a Brown pelican (although that particular species is not actually native to Australia).
