Trivia: This is just an interesting anecdote: In an Australian newspaper, some poor irate viewer of 'Finding Nemo' wrote a long and indignant letter abusing the creators of this movie for using AMERICAN pelicans rather than AUSTRALIAN pelicans (noticeable only for the fact that Aussie pelicans don't have brown feathers and Nigel does). This anonymous person was 'disappointed that the creators couldn't even make the effort to use native Australian fauna'. The editor of the paper replied to the letter thusly: 'Thank you for your heartfelt contribution. We also noticed a glaring mistake in 'Finding Nemo': Fish can't talk.' However, this is in no way meant to offend the person who has already pointed out this mistake on this site.
